|SON OF MAN |
a title of Christ, assumed by himself in his humiliation, John 1:51.
It was understood as a designation of the Messiah, according to Old Testament predictions, Psalms 80:17 Daniel 7:13,14; but appears to indicate especially his true humanity or oneness with the human race. It is applies to him more than eighty times in the New Testament.
