Jesus is called the Son of Man because Jesus
is the co-creator of man.
Genesis: 1-26 Reads as follows;
And God went on to say: "Let US make man in OUR image,
according to OUR likeness."
The key words here are 'US' and 'OUR'.
PLural - more than one!
Father and Son created 'Man' together.
God is the Heavenly Father of Man,
and therefore,- his Son - is the Son of Man.
Co-creators of mankind!
Jesus was not telling tall tales when he said in:
John: 8-58 "I am telling you the truth: before Abraham
was born, I am."
The Book of John begins as follows and states quite clearly.
John 1 - (1) "Before the world was created, the Word already
existed: he was with God, and he was the same as God. (2) From
the very beginning the Word was with God. (3) Through him God
made all things: not one thing in all creation was made
without him. (4) The Word was the source of life, and this
life brought light to mankind. (5) The light shines in the
darkness, and the darkness has never put it out."
God is spirit. Man is made in his image and likeness.
The real Man is therefore spirit.
The spirit soul within the flesh is the true Man.
You are soul.
