 The Son of Man in the Teachings of Jesus-
David Flusser has argued, "The one like a man [the Son of man] who sits upon the throne of God's glory, the sublime eschatological judge, is the highest conception of the Redeemer ever developed by ancient Judaism." The phrase "Son of man" could be interpreted as a generic term meaning an ordinary human being.

 The Son of Man -- JesusWalk
The phrase appears 100 times in the Old Testament, 93 of them in Ezekiel as a synonym for "man." The reason apparently Jesus used this as his self designation was because of its reference in Daniel 7, especially vs. 19, that Jesus quoted at his mock trial (Luke 22:66-71).

Finally, the phrase "Son of Man" also emphasizes who Jesus is in relation to His incarnation and His work of salvation.

 Betraying the Son of Man (The Anthropik Network)
In the mid-second century a satirist called Lucian tells us of a man he's sure is a charlatan, a man called Proteus Peregrinus, whom followers of Jesus called "the Christian Socrates," and Cynics hailed as the greatest man since the original Diogenes, accepting his Christian sufferings as part of his Cynic credentials.
Take, for example, the following passage, from Matthew 23:9, "And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." In the patriarchal, Roman world, this statement does not just reject the family, it rejects the very basis of all authority.
But, as I discussed in a long article on the historical Jesus, "Betraying the Son of Man," Jesus' teachings evince a blending of Greek Cynicism with Essenism, and the Essenes were known for intentional celibacy.
