Son of Man

Jesus most commonly referred to Himself as the Son of Man, revealing and emphasising His humanity, upcoming suffering and resurrection (Mk 8:31). Yet, embodied in Him was the power to forgive sins, and work mighty miracles because God was with Him – indeed He was also the Son of God, and He will return in glory (Mt 16:27; Mk 2:7-10; Act 10:38). Thus this name encompasses both the human limitations, by which He relates to us, together with the power and authority of His divine status (Rom 1:3,4; Heb 4:15).
