This text brings together modern scholarship on the meaning of the expression “son of man.” The interpretation of the Greek phrase and its Aramaic origins dramatically changes its effect in Scripture. Is it a generic expression about human beings, or did it carry the weight of a Christological title like son of God, Christ, Messiah, and son of David? ‘Who Is This Son of Man?’ explores the possible meanings with experts in Aramiac, historical Jesus studies, the son of man debate, and related fields of research.
