If Jesus Called Himself the Son of Man, Why do We Call Him the Son of God? (Video)
This is a major topic, which deserves to be examined by itself. If Jesus called Himself “The Son of Man,” why do we call Him, “The Son of God?” This is a major argument which will come up if you ever get into a conversation with an informed Muslim. It is also raised often by Liberal/secular scholars like Thomas Sheehan.
