Humanity of Christ



A sevenfold view given to us of Christ as the Son of Man.

. As the Son of Man He is seen in His suffering (Matthew 17:12,22; 20:18,19; 26:2,24,45).

. In His poverty ( Matt.8:20).

. In His authority ( 9:6;12:8; 13:41; 16:13).

. In His work (13:37; 18:11).

. In His death (12:40).

. In His resurrection (17:9).

. In His coming glory (16:27,28; 19:28; 24:27,30,37,44; 25:13,31; 26:64).

When Christ is spoken of as the “ Son of Man” it is always in relation to the earth. He is never once said to be such in the epistles in relation to the Church, for the Church has to do with heaven, and not earth. Once He is said to be the Son of Man in the Acts (7:56), and twice in the Revelation (Rev.1:13; 14:14).
