“Who is the ‘Son of Man’—Jesus or Ezekiel?”
“I am reading Ezekiel. When God addresses Ezekiel, he calls him ‘Son of Man.’ I thought that title was exclusively for Jesus. Can you comment on this?”
Son of Man references:
Ezekiel 2:1 (NET) “He said to me, “Son of man, stand on your feet and I will speak with you.”
Daniel 8:17 (NLT) “As Gabriel approached the place where I was standing, I became so terrified that I fell with my face to the ground. “Son of man,” he said, “you must understand that the events you have seen in your vision relate to the time of the end.”
Matthew 12:40 (NLT) “For just as Jonah was in the belly of the huge fish for three days and three nights, so the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights.”
The Son of Man—a name that became a title.
Daniel 7:13-14 (NIV) “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence.” 14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed."
