Proverbs 8:34-36 Blessed is the man who hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my door posts. For whoever finds me finds life, and will obtain favor from Yahweh. But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul. All those who hate me love death.” Psalm 84: 11 For Yahweh God is a sun and a shield. Yahweh will give grace and glory. He withholds no good thing from those who walk blamelessly. 12 Yahweh of Armies, blessed is the man who trusts in you. 1 John 5:5 Now who is the one overcoming the world, except the one believing that Jesus is the Son of God?

Jesus (The SON of MAN) proves He is not GOD. By Simon Brown.

Jesus the SON of MAN proves He is not GOD. By Simon Brown.

Scriptures by Berean Literal Bible, unless otherwise stated.

Can GOD become a MAN?

Did GOD become the SON of MAN?

If Jesus is GOD, why did He call Himself (the SON of MAN) more than any other name or Title?

Was Jesus GOD and hiding His divinity?

Why did Jesus say:
And no one has gone up into heaven except the One having come down out of heaven, (the Son of Man). John 3:13

As Jesus said He came down out of heaven, was Jesus the SON of MAN in heaven?

Can a MAN which is flesh and blood live in heaven?

If Jesus was a MAN in Heaven, HOW was Jesus also GOD in Heaven?

WHY did Jesus call Himself (the SON of MAN), when He was born in the womb of Mary?

As Jesus was born in the womb of Mary, WHY didn't Jesus call Himself (the SON of WOMEN),

Was Jesus making a SIGNIFICANT distinction between Himself and GOD?

Is (the SON of MAN) Title, simply an idiom, expressing Jesus humanity?

I have given just some simple and obvious questions that need to be answered, to WHY MOST believe that Jesus is GOD, and PRE EXISTED His flesh, and is (the Son of Man), who EXISTED in Heaven, and came DOWN from Heaven BEFORE He was BORN as (the Son of Man).

(The Son of Man)?

There has been very much debate for centuries to what Jesus meant, and to why Jesus said so many times He is (the Son of Man).

I believe the reason why (the Son of Man) Title, is so debated is because of biased people.

Here is my own research I would like to share with you, and I would be delighted to hear what you believe, as I am always learning.

At this stage I can say, we know when Jesus said He was (the SON of MAN) He was referring to an amazing Old Testament Prophecy of Himself, and a messianic title derived from the Book of Daniel 7:13-14.

Lets first have a look at this Great messianic title and Old Testament Prophecy, yet to be fulfilled.

World English Bible
I saw in the night visions, and behold, there came with the clouds of the sky one like a son of man, and he came even to the ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. There was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all the peoples, nations, and languages should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. Daniel 7:13-14.

Daniel 7:13-14 is clearly the same Prophecy told by Jesus in verses like Matthew 24:30-31.
And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn. And they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.

Trinitarians claim that when Jesus repeatedly called himself the Son of Man, He was claiming to be GOD.

And yet as Jesus was the Son of Man, and MAN is flesh and blood, how did Jesus as flesh and blood live in a spiritual world when flesh and blood cannot live in a heaven.

Paul tells us:
Now I say this, brothers, that flesh and blood is not able to inherit the kingdom of God, nor does decay inherit immortality.

While others also believe Jesus was confirming his divinity as a heavenly being, because of Daniel 7:13-14.

We have just seen how Jesus referred to an amazing Old Testament Prophecy of Himself in Daniel 7:13-14.

However the amazing Old Testament Prophecy of Jesus in Daniel 7:13-14, does NOT explain WHY Jesus is referred to as (the SON of MAN), or WHERE (the SON of MAN) Title comes from.

But please hold on, as I am going to show you what I believe from my own research to WHERE (the SON of MAN) Title comes from, and the ENORMOUS SIGNIFICANCE, to WHY Jesus so often called Himself (the SON of MAN) more than any other name or Title?

What I have learnt since studying the word of GOD, is how Jesus has many wonderful names, and great Titles, as we see some below:

John 1:29
Berean Literal Bible
On the next day, he sees Jesus coming to him and says, "Behold the Lamb of God, the One taking away the sin of the world. 

Matthew 16:16
And Simon Peter answering said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

King of the Jews. Matthew 2:2
saying, "Where is the One having been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him."

John 6:35
Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; the one coming to Me never shall hunger, and the one believing in Me never shall thirst at any time.

Romans 10:9
that if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Him out from the dead, you will be saved.

Matthew 1:23 
Berean Literal Bible
"Behold, the virgin will hold in womb, and will bring forth a son, and they will call His name Immanuel" which is, being translated, "God with us."

Revelation 22:16
"I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to all of you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star."

John 8:12 
Therefore Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. The one following Me shall not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life."

And the last and great Title for Jesus was given to us by John, when Jesus was born He became the living. walking. physical (word of God) in Revelation 19:13.
and having been clothed with a garment having been dipped in blood. And His name is called The Word of God.

As we have seen Jesus has many names, and Great Titles that we can easily UNDERSTAND the meaning of.

But what did Jesus mean by calling Himself the (SON of MAN)?

As all other names and Titles of Jesus have a Great meaning, then surely there must be a very important meaning and ENORMOUS SIGNIFICANCE for the reason WHY Jesus called Himself (the SON of MAN) more than any other name or Title.

What I read:
The expression "the Son of man" appears 81 times in the Koine Greek of the four Gospels: 30 times in Matthew, 14 times in Mark, 25 times in Luke and 12 times in John.[3][7]

Son of David!

Notice how Jesus is also called  Son of David! And Jesus passing on from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, "Have mercy on us, Son of David." Matthew 9:27
And behold, a Canaanite woman from the same region having approached, was crying out saying, "Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter is miserably possessed by a demon." 
Matthew 15:22

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, we read:
The title "Son of David" indicates Jesus' physical descent from David, as well as his membership of the Davidic line of kings. The phrase is used a number of times in the gospel of Matthew. It appears in Matthew 1:1 to introduce both the genealogy and the gospel. It is found on the lips of the blind men healed in Galilee ("Have mercy on us, Son of David", Matthew 9:27), the crowd who are amazed at Jesus' healing of a blind, mute and demon-possessed man Matthew 12:23), the Canaanite woman whose daughter is exorcised ("Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me," Matthew 15:22), and the blind men healed near Jericho ("Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us", Matthew 20:30). Finally, it also forms part of the shout of the crowds when Jesus enters Jerusalem: "Hosanna to the Son of David" (Matthew 21:9).
A variant of this title is found in Revelation 22:16, where Jesus refers to himself as "the Root and the Offspring of David".

Did you notice, (The title "Son of David" indicates Jesus' physical descent from David)?

Does the Title (Son of MAN), also indicate Jesus physical descent?

Ezekiel: In the book of Ezekiel alone, God calls the prophet “son of man” 93 times. In this context, he was referring to Ezekiel as a human being. It’s not until we get to the book of Daniel that we see “son of man” take on greater significance. 

There is no debate over Ezekiel’s nature: he was a human being, a man, not a spirit being or a separate yet unified part of God. 

Can you see how we are now getting very close to understanding WHY Jesus called Himself (The SON of MAN)?

Friends the best comes last:

To get closer to the meaning of (The SON of MAN), we must travel back through the entire HUMAN line of descent.

And when we do, we come to our first ancestors, who were Adam and Eve.

We HUMANS are the children of our first parents, and our first parents were 100% HUMAN.

World English Bible
I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his heel.”  Genesis 3:15

Genesis 3:15 is an Old Testament prophecy, telling us the coming Messiah Jesus, would be a human being, who would be from the seed of the woman, Eve.

As Jesus was born in Mary, who also descends back to Eve, 
and is from the seed of the woman Eve, so why isn’t Jesus called the Son of Women?

The simple answer is in Genesis 2:22, World English Bible:

Adam Names the Animals
18 Yahweh God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him." 19 Out of the ground Yahweh God formed every animal of the field, and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. Whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all livestock, and to the birds of the sky, and to every animal of the field; but for man there was not found a helper suitable for him.

The Creation of Woman
21 Yahweh God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 He made the rib, which Yahweh God had taken from the man, into a woman, and brought her to the man.
23 The man said, "This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She will be called 'woman,' because she was taken out of Man."

Did you notice:
Jesus was BORN by a Miracle in the womb of Mary, and her line of descent is traced back to our first ancestors, Adam and Eve.

And as the first Women Eve was taken from the First MAN Adam, this confirms WHY Jesus so often called Himself (The Son of MAN), as Jesus was affirming His human form, and is affirming his humanity, as a MAN.

As Adam means MAN, and Jesus was BORN as a HUMAN, John 1:14, this explains WHY Christ is called (the Son of Man) as the entire HUMAN line of descent is traced back to the first MAN Adam, hence the term, Christ is called (the Son of Man), traced back to the first MAN Adam, is being recalled.

The Son of Man, is a direct reference to Jesus as coming from the first MAN ADAM.
When Jesus said so many times He was (the Son of Man), Jesus was confirming His humanity as a MAN, hence, the first human.

My research proves Jesus was continually making a distinction between Himself as being a HUMAN BEING, and NOT a pre existing being, or GOD.

Did GOD and Jesus know that the Devil would DECEIVE MOST of Christianity into believing Jesus was the same ONE TRUE GOD, or Jesus was a pre existing being?

In Revelation 12:9 we read how Satan is deceiving the whole inhabited world, just as I was also deceived more then once:
And the great dragon was thrown out, the ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, deceiving the whole inhabited world. He was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Revelation 12:9.

The problem here is that MOST do not do any research and do not read the oldest Bibles or translations, but read the countless false modern Trinitarian Bible translations which are deceiving millions from the truth.

Example, most read and live by the KJB which was edited by Erasmus a Roman Catholic priest, who depended mostly upon two twelfth-century manuscripts based on the Textus Receptus, which may be why the KJB is full of countless ERRORS and FALSE translations which Erasmus dedicated the Greek New Testament to Pope Leo X. 

And Erasmus being a Roman Catholic priest, also meant he was a dedicated Trinitarian so was biased by making Jesus sound like He is GOD in the flesh. Read: Thirteen Facts About KJV Onlyism

A perfect example can be seen in 1 Timothy 3:16 of the KJB which says GOD was manifest in the flesh, but should say (WHO) meaning (He) Jesus was manifest in the flesh.

MOST also simply believe what they have been taught by countless false teachers, and close their eyes and ears to the truth, when the Biblical facts are presented, which I believe is mostly because of a PRIDEFUL heart.

GOD said: You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

Jesus said SEEK and we will FIND. Matthew 7:7.

If we obey GOD and His Son and SEEK out the ONE TRUE GOD and TRUE Son, we will surely find them, as they say, overcoming the devils black holes and terrible deceptions.

If we are a Berean Jew, who received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see what teachings were true, we would see the countless false Trinitarian translations which should be a WAKE UP CALL, and we would not be so deceived.

As GOD and Jesus knew that the Devil would DECEIVE MOST of Christianity, was this the reason WHY Jesus said so many times He was (the Son of Man), confirming His humanity as a HUMAN BEING?

Numbers 23:19 tells us: God is not a man, that He should lie, or a son of man, that He should change His mind. Does He speak and not act? Does He promise and not fulfill?

And yet MOST of Christianity have been deceived into believing and teaching GOD IS A MAN, and THE SON OF MAN.

The UNIQUE side of Jesus.

We have hopefully seen and understood the HUMAN side of Jesus.

And we now hopefully understand why Jesus called Himself (the Son of Man), confirming His humanity as a HUMAN BEING, proving He is NOT GOD, or a pre existing being.

Lets now talk about the Godly and the Spiritual side of Jesus.

Even though Jesus was a HUMAN BEING just like us, there is absolutely NO HUMAN BEING like Jesus.

Apart from Adam and Eve, Jesus is the ONLY HUMAN BEING born WITHOUT a HUMAN Father.

Jesus is the ONLY HUMAN BEING Begotten DIRECTLY from His GOD in the womb of Mary.
Which is why: The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His nature, Hebrews1:3.

Not like all HUMAN beings who were born with Adams sin nature.

Which is why Jesus is called (The only BEGOTTEN Son of GOD) John 1:18, John 3:16,  John 3:18, 1 John 4:9.

And this is why we all need Jesus to be saved so that by repenting and believing GOD sent His Son, and believing what Jesus did on the cross, and taking up our own cross by denying ourselves, and following Jesus, GOD's grace and love makes us perfect, by His Begotten Son’s perfect sacrifice Hebrews 10:14.

And this is WHY Jesus said He came DOWN from heaven, NOT because Jesus was PRE EXISTING in Heaven, but because Jesus is NOT from the DUST of the earth like Adam, but because Jesus is FROM GOD, and (Our Father is in the heavens:
Therefore pray you like this: 'Our Father in the heavens, hallowed be Your name! Matthew 6:9.

Jesus declared He is the Son of His ONE TRUE GOD John 10:36, which is the greatest PROOF Jesus is NOT that same GOD He was born from.

If Jesus were GOD, He would have simply said: I and the Father are ONE (GOD).

If GOD were Jesus, then Jesus would have simply said: For God so loved the world that He gave (HIMSELF) and NOT His only begotten Son. John 3:16.

If GOD was Jesus, when Jesus was born, GOD would have simply said: This is (ME), and NOT my beloved Son. Matthew 3:17

Jesus was: 
The New Adam, The Second Adam, who succeeded and overcame all trials and temptations, and became, (The perfect SON of MAN), who became The Last perfect Adam, because Jesus is (The only BEGOTTEN Son) of GOD. Amen.

For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the MAN Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 2:5.
Comment from Sir Anthony Buzzard:
Simon, good to hear from you. Yes SON of Man is simply member of the human race/;
Jesus has this title as his favorite self-designatioin
Dan 7 is the key passage and of course the Son of Man who received the right to rule the world in the Kingdom with the saints Dan 7:27
Most Bible Dictionaries will give you the info
Jesus is as you the my lord (adoni, 195 times) never God.  Ps 110;1
In hope,
