The Son of Man

The Christian minister, Charles Spurgeon, points out something interesting. 

Of all the rightful titles that Christ could have used to identify himself, He most regularly used "Son of man."

Spurgeon writes, "But behold the lowliness of Jesus! He prefers to call Himself the Son of man.  Let us learn a lesson of humility from our Savior.  Let us never become devoted to seeking great titles or proud degrees.  There is here, however, a far sweeter thought. Jesus loved manhood so much, that he delighted to honour it."

And further on, "Yet, there is an even more precious thought.  Jesus Christ called Himself the Son of man to express His oneness and sympathy with His people.  He reminds us that we may approach Him without fear.  We may take all our griefs and troubles to Him, for He knows them by experience.  Since He Himself suffered as the 'Son of man,' He is able to comfort us."
