But one name has caused difficulties. It has a hidden meaning which a mere translation does not reveal. We refer to the name by which Jesus spoke of Himself and which others either dared not or would not repeat after Him. Others called Him Rabbi, Lord, and Master. He called Himself THE SON OF MAN. But what is the meaning or this name? Why did Christ so consistently use it? Milligan tells us that “probably no other single phrase of the Gospels has called forth a greater variety of interpretations; nor can we be said even yet to have reached definite conclusions on many of the questions it raises.
