The Christianity should not be without Jesus of Nazareth and human history should be deprived of the ethical component which addressed it to a purpose of well and love.

 Into the Wardrobe :: View topic - Jesus of Nazareth: Son of Man...Son of God?
Jesus used the title, "Son of man", of himself more than any other....The majority of contexts indicate that in using this title Jesus is thinking of Daniel 7:13, where the "son of man" is a heavenly figure, both an individual and at the same time the ideal representative of the people of God.
However, the claim of Jesus to divinity, either in his own life or at least on his behalf by the first generation of his followers, is clear.
If Jesus claimed to be the Son of Man is it logical to assume that he was referring to himself as this personage.

Jesus was supremely confident of the triumph of God's plan and of his own victory as the revelation of that plan.
