  1. Daniel is about a visin he had,and another of the king who had a vision.These are visions of future events.Ezekiel also speaks of a vision,of the four living creatures or translated living beings.

  2. Some argue that the phrase son of man took on Messianic significance within the Christian movement primarily due to the Jewish eschatology during the time of its early conception. These people originate the phrase in the book of Daniel, in a vision, one like a son of man is described coming upon the clouds of the sky to unite the world. Contenders point out that the phrase “the son of man” and “one like a son of man” are not the same and that in Daniel 8 the phrase “son of man” is translated as merely “mortal” therefore the eschatology is added later.

    As a result, some Christians believe that the New Testament’s, primarily the Gospels’, usage of the son of man eighty-three times represents an apocalyptic title of Jesus.[15] Some scholars and Christians have argued that the apocryphal tradition of this phrase even goes back to Jesus, himself, though not necessarily as a phrase Jesus used as a reference to himself but rather another figure alluded to in Daniel 7:13.[16] Other scholars and Christians believe Jesus did not use the phrase, originally, as a title at all and that he used it primarily to refer to humanity generally. The phrase then became reworked toward an apocryphal slant[17] Later, especially during the medieval ages, Christians interpreted it as Jesus showing humility[18] Still other Christians believe the title is meant to signify Jesus upholding his identification with his humanity and fellowship with mankind, perhaps also conveying the idea that Jesus is the man par excellence. In this last context it serves as putting humans and Jesus on the same level.

    Some argue that Son of Man was a specific title for the non-violent Messiah described in prophesies such as Isaiah 53. If so, Jesus could have used it because he wanted to make it clear that he didn’t intend to start a revolt against the Romans..
