** For that matter, {{Jesus}} often referred to Himself as "The Son of Man" while prophesying.
*** Some Christian scholars believe it was actually a title he used to establish himself as THE Christ and the son of, not just any man but THE man, God himself. This is of course, subject to a great deal of interpretation.
