We received a Bible Q&A from Michelle who asks:

"Why is Jesus called the 'Son of Man'?  What does this mean?"

Check out the references and answer below!

Biblical Background:

  • Matt 16:13 - Jesus called himself the "Son of Man"
  • Luke 18:31 - Jesus said there were prophecies about "Son of Man"
  • John 12:34 - People were asking "Who is this Son of Man?"

Two Meanings:

  • Dan 8:17 - Son of man means "fully human"
  • Dan 7:13 - Son of man means "Messiah"
