What’s in a Name?

Jesus’ favorite name, his favorite way of talking about himself, was “Son of Man.” But what does this mean? This mysterious title draws on Old Testament traditions that speak to both glory and humility, and reveals the essence of who Jesus is and what He is about.

And he said to him, “Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”

John 1:51
