Do you get excited about bible prophecy? In Jesus’ day, people studied prophecy, hoping for relief from their personal and national problems. Jesus fulfilled many prophecies. One of his titles came from the prophecies of Daniel. The title is Son of Man. Listen to Daniel 7:13-14, “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. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men 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.” (NIV)
The title Son of Man references Jesus’ human nature. But Daniel’s passage also mentions receiving sovereign power and worship, which are characteristics of God. Jesus himself claimed the title when healing a paralytic as well as another of God’s abilities, forgiving sins. Matthew 9:5-7 says, ‘“Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins. . . .” Then he said to the paralytic, “Get up, take your mat and go home.” And the man got up and went home.’ (NIV)
Remember, Jesus, the Son of Man, forgives sins. His is human and divine.
