This monograph develops the view that the Synoptic Gospels suggest
that Jesus expected vindication of his earthly mission after his
death by receiving a status of exaltation in the presence of God.
This would involve the exercise of the functions of judging and
ruling associated with the Jewish concept of the Son of man. A
variety of alternative explanations has been offered concerning the
origin and meaning of this title as it appears in the Gospels. The
earlier part of this book examines the most important of these
against their Jewish background. The second part examines in detail
the most important Son of man sayings attributed to Jesus in the
first three Gospels. The author concludes that some of these
sayings which refer to the Son of man in his future exaltation and
glory alone contain authentic words of Jesus in which the term has
a messianic sense; and that the Son of man christology in the
gospels originated not in the creative thought of early Christians
but in the preaching of Jesus himself.
