Chapter 3 - Snapshots of Jesus as Seen Through the Gospels; Gospel of Mark - Mark Lanier

Mark continued with Snapshots of Jesus from the Gospel of Mark. Today’s topic: What is the Significance of the references to ""Son of Man” throughout the Bible? The Gospel of Mark mentions Jesus as the Son of Man fourteen times. During biblical times, culture used the term to show a man was known as son of man (Name of man, son of Name-of-the-father).

In the Old Testament, son of man was reference 107 times, meaning me or people themselves. In Daniel 7:13, the term takes on apocalyptic meaning or prophecy of Jesus.

In the Gospel of Mark, son of man can be categorized as either:

  • Present activity of Jesus.
  • Sufferings of Jesus.
  • Future Vindication.

Listen to Mark explain the significance of Jesus as the Son of Man. We want to see Jesus, so we can praise Him, and follow Him."
