When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” Matthew 16:13
The Son of Man was the title Jesus preferred for Himself.
It appears over eighty times in the Gospels.
It says He is fully God and fully man.
It says He fully identifies with humanity whom He has come to save.
He has all authority enabling Him to work miracles
Yet He has no earthly possessions.
But in Daniel 7:13-14
There is the rest of the story.
The Son of Man in power and glory.
Ruling and reigning
Where He was always meant to be.
From the foundation of the world.
The cross was only part of the plan.
The crown in the culmination.
He was the baby in the manger.
He was the itinerant rabbi.
He was the suffering savior and the risen Lord.
He is and forevermore will be the King of Kings.
Enthroned. Exalted. Glorified.
The Son of Man points to that.
