Son of Man
Reading this, I've come to a better understand of what the New Testament phrase 'son of man' means. So I don't mean to be crassly simple-minded, except insofar that crass simple-mindednes has become one of the dominant modes of Biblical exegesis today. But since many people believe, straightforwardly, that Christ is the son of God; and also that he is, as he claimed, the Son of Man, doesn't it follow that Man and God are the same thing?
