He will be victor in the final struggle against Satan and the evil powers. He is now hidden with the Lord of Spirits. When revealed, he will be seated on his, or God's, throne of glory.
He will come with the clouds. According to Blackwood, study of The Book of Enoch suggests that the concept of Son of Man was developed already before the time of the Maccabees, in conjunction with vivid and other- worldly eschatology.
Summary by Blackwood, Also briefly in Craig S. He is in some way connected with the resurrection. He will judge the world. In addition to what has been described above, there was a lot of other Jewish eschatological and apocalyptic imagery "floating around" in Jesus' time, but the most important literal work in Jesus' time was The Book of Enoch. Other apocryphal books in the first century A.
Mainly because of Enoch and Daniel, of course , the image of apocalyptic Son of Man was somewhat well known to the Jews. In addition to this, the usage of "son of man" in Aramaic referring to a person was natural in Jesus' time. Nonetheless, because the learned Jews associated "the Son of man" with "the Son of God", Jesus favorite self-designation lead eventually to his trial and crucifixion.
The increased interest to the Son of man was aroused after Jesus adopted the title for himself and started his ministry. Apparently, the most obvious reason for Jesus to adopt this term was to protect the secret of the Kingdom17 and delay the conflict with the authorities He also gradually revealed his identity as "the Son of man" who is "the Son of God". Schweizer concludes that "…Jesus deliberately employs this ambiguous title to suggest, although not explicitly to define, his divinely-sent mission to proclaim the presence of the Kingdom and to indicate the relationship of his earthly life and death to its coming.
This midrashic activity of Jewish scribes was paralleled be early Christian authors who turned to Scripture in their missionary and apologetic proclamation…"; John R. He was an ordinary Palestinian Jew in a rural and insignificant area, was connected with the movement of John the Baptist, did miraculous things, practiced a profession of teaching with greatest success ever, gathered a following that turned the world upside down, was executed as a criminal with a weak case against him, his tomb was found empty, and his followers were convinced he was risen from the dead.
This is the Jesus historians know. They also know that "the Son of Man" was Jesus' preferred self-designation; most of New Testament scholars agree with this.
More precisely, contemporary scholars agree that the title "Son of Man" is ascribed to Jesus in all strata of the Gospel tradition Mark, Q, Matthew's and Luke's special material, John ,20 and it is used exclusively as Jesus' self-designation. Ladd points out three distinctive features in the use of the title in the Gospels: First, The Son of Man was Jesus' favorite way to designate himself, and he used the title quite freely.
Second, the title was never used by anyone else to designate Jesus.
Third, there is no evidence in Acts or the epistles that the early Church called Jesus the Son of man. It was not a random pick, but it was not loaded with definite meaning, either. Interestingly, where Jesus admits his messiahship, he affirms that he is the Messiah, but in the Son of man sense. Rev ed.
Eerdmans, , Ladd discusses on the Jn. McCown, "Jesus, Son of Man: A Survey of Recent Discussion. He was the heavenly Messiah of the Son of Man sort. The title Son of Man occurs 68 times in the Synoptic gospels, and 40 different times when parallels are eliminated.
The occurrences can be grouped into three categories with some overlap. This grouping has served as a framework for studies of Jesus, as presented below; this scheme has been accepted and applied widely among the New Testament scholars. Group A: In this category, the exaltation of the Son of Man is affirmed, or his coming on the clouds of heaven is predicted.
This category can be named the "heavenly Son of Man sayings". There are 19 Knox or 16 E. Schweizer occurrences in this group. Group B: This category, the "suffering Son of Man sayings", has to do with the suffering of Jesus, especially with his trial and execution. There are 10 Knox or 11 Schweizer occurrences in this group. Group C: This category is not so easily distinguishable, and it can be named it accordingly: There are 11 Knox or 13 Schweizer occurrences in this group.
The parallel occurrences of the sayings are unimportant, because there is almost no variation in the parallel double or triple appearances of a saying. Rahner confirms: The Son of man —image referred to Jesus' earthly walk class C , suffering class B and parousia class A ; there simply was no logical use for the title after the resurrection and before parousia.
In the meantime, the most appropriate title for Jesus was "the Lord". He was both the suffering servant and will be the divine judge who will come again. Jesus was and is the Son of God, the Lord. Arthur J. Ferch summarizes the history of Christian interpretations of the Son of man before the modern era. The Son of man in Daniel is Jesus, and the text informs us about His second coming.
Ferch, The Son of Man in Daniel 7. Andrews University Press, ; Ferch concentrates in the figure in Dan. In spite of that, this view has been present in Christian theology also. A great volume of works was published during , W. Wrede's The Messianic Secret and A. Schweizer's The Mystery of the Kingdom in the same day in Publications on the topic before the 's34 incorporated subject matters and themes like the Iranian etc.
McCown ends his summary by concluding that the chief causes for the difference of opinion were theological, psychological "sane person Jesus couldn't possibly say this" , and historical presuppositions or assumptions. Ladd summarizes the discussion on Jesus' Son of man sayings and their interpretation in five distinct types as follows: Among the Jewish writers the first collective interpretation of the Son of Man is from Abraham ibn Ezra ca. Jesus' self-identification with the apocalyptic figure is not authentic; he is an earthly Son of Man only.
Case, F. Cadoux, J. Bowman, T. Manson; "the remnant", "holy community" etc. Dodd's contribution. McCown adds that truthful ideas may arise outside of the Hebrew background God's revelation to gentile world, cf.
Iranian influence in Enoch , and ideas evolve in time the concept and understanding of the Son of Man between Daniel and the early church. Schweitzer, supported by J. Jeremias, that only eschatological sayings class A are authentic, and Jesus himself expected to be the heavenly Son of man at the end of the age; 3 The view of Bultmann, and followed by many, that only apocalyptic class A sayings are authentic, but Jesus was referring to another apocalyptic figure who will judge people at the end of the age on the basis of their relationship to Jesus; 4 The radical view that rejects all the sayings classes A, B and C as authentic, and attributes them to the Christian community; 5 The position of a few scholars, primarily E.
Schweitzer and M. Black, who argue for earthly Jesus —sayings class C , but are skeptical about the authenticity of the other groups. Scholar's dogmatic considerations and their view of the nature of history decides what one thinks may be true and authentic in the Gospels, closes Ladd. Donahue points out that, on a literary basis, the existence of any pre-Christian expectation of an apocalyptic Son of man who was a messianic figure has been questioned. Similarly, the published fragments of 1 Enoch from Qumran missed the very parts caps.
Most scholars seem to end up dating 1 Enoch to first century A. D; Jackson, The Expositor's Bible Commentary 8, Even Dan. However, after there were no major new original approaches to the subject matter.
The conservatives continued to find their key to the Son of man in the New Testament from the combination of Daniel's and Enoch's divine figure and Isaiah's suffering Servant; a concept that did not exist before Jesus. The other camp Hooker, Perrin proposed an early Christian pesher-type tradition, related to OT images as a rationale for redaction of Jesus' sayings towards the Son of man Christology50 — yet another radical idea that does not sound too convincing.
For getting deeper into the issue, one has to turn to the Scriptures. Why does Matthew use "the Son of man", when Mark and Luke don't? What is the significance of this? While answering these, the overall message of the text will be studied, and some exegetical questions will be addressed and answered. Nonetheless, the main focus is in Matthew The text of the passage goes like this parallel texts in Mk. Matthew Jesus and the disciples retreated to the area of Caesarea Philippi only Mt.
The reason for this was most likely the hectic period of ministry that they had had previously. Caesarea Philippi was more Gentile than Jewish, so at last they could have some rest, prayer included see Luke. Also, they had a chance to reflect on the decisive issue: The identity of Jesus.
Along the way, the crowd and individuals had inquired about Jesus' authority and power. The tentative answer had been "the Messiah? Now Jesus was ready to tackle this politically hot issue with his nearest followers. First he queried the popular opinion of his identity. When Jesus asks their own opinion, Peter is the first to express their verdict: Jesus is the Messiah Mt.
Jesus had not revealed this to the people before for a reason, and even now he warns them not to tell this messianic secret to anyone. In Matthew, the account is more extensive than in parallel texts, and therefore it contains more material also.
The Matthean version incorporates sayings and themes such as: Jesus could not have used the word ekklesia gr. The later writing or translation in Greek was naturally using ekklesia, as it was the typical expression for Christian community later. However, it is also possible that this was exactly the way the original dialogue took place, even though Mark and Luke are more brief in their narrative.
Hades they were visiting — an area with temples and fortresses built of massive cut stones. Dealing with these issues above would require another study, so we will focus on the study question next: Why does Matthew have "the Son of man" in Jesus' opening question?
This is in line with other Gospels and also parallels the subsequent question in v. Moreover, this reading is even more plausible when taken into account that numerous text variants have the reading "I me , the Son of man" This was a typical way for Jesus to talk about himself, and even typical in the Aramaic use of language.
Thus, Mark and Luke who omit the title are basically writing the same thing, only more plainly.
Maybe they did not want to confuse their gentile readers with the ambiguous but virtually redundant here title, especially in this essential passage. By omitting the title they do convey the point of this dialogue, but at the same time they lose something original that Matthew preserves. With the hypothesis that "Matthew has the most authentic saying in The claims for authenticity and the best originality of the Matthean account of "Peter's confession" but not necessarily of the extra material will gain weight.
If Jesus used the title in the original "Peter's confession" dialogue, it sheds light on parallels in the later verses "the Son of man" — "the Son of the Living God" — "Simon, Bar-Jona" , and might also substantiate authenticity of the extra material in the narrative.
Jesus was not polling about opinions on the Son of man's identity. The "Son of man" figure was not that popular, and maybe there was not any widespread public opinion about the figure; the Son of man was a familiar image to religious leaders.
In Jesus' time, Jesus was probably the best know candidate for "the Son of man", at least in his followers' thinking. Jesus was an insightful educator, but here he was not using a teaching trick to facilitate a student-centered learning experience.
He was talking plainly about his identity in a situation where the disciples were already conscious of about his probable messiahship.
The theological significance of the Matthean dialogue is in Jesus' initiative to reveal his "Son of man" identity to the closest ones, but still hide it from the wider public. He gave his disciples an explicit confirmation of his messiahship. From then on, the disciples knew that the Son of man and the Messiah were the same person: Their teacher and leader, Jesus of Nazareth. Conclusion Studying the topic in general and Mt.
The identity of Jesus was a key topic then, as it still is see "quests" above! As a matter of fact, because his identity as the Messiah of Israel was eventually exposed, he was executed as a blasphemer and a threat to the political status quo. For Jesus the best choice was to remain the mystic "the Son of man" as long as possible, because of "the crowd management challenge" they faced everywhere.
In a due course, it was necessary for his mission to ride on the donkey to the Jerusalem as the Son of David, the Messiah. It revealed and concealed at the same time. In a private conversation, when it was the time to face the facts, Jesus confirmed his identity; the Son of man they knew, Jesus of Nazareth, is the Messiah.
