Jesus called himself (in Aramaic) the Son of Man. Surely he was taking that title from the books of Daniel and Ezekiel in the Hebrew Bible.
- What does the title Son of Man mean?
- What does it mean to different readers of English translations of the Bible?
- If it has little, if any, meaning to many readers, should they be taught the biblical meaning, or should we translate with English words that communicate meaning to more people (but may lack some of the original Hebraic meaning), as the new CEB translation does using “the Human One” for “Son of Man”)?
