This Bible Study Series was produced and created especially by Biblesoft, for use in the PC Study Bible and OneTouch programs. It has been taken from articles and notes written for our Bible Online Study Site, and been adapted for use as an electronic reference work. Originally created for Easter season 2018, it is divided into 22 individual studies, and can be used as a monthly or seasonal Bible study course. Each study provides in-depth analysis of the Greek (or Hebrew) text of Scripture, along with an extensive examination of the historical and culture background, questions of interpretation, and more!
This particular series deals with the "Son of Man" Sayings of Jesus—instances in the Gospels where Jesus makes use of the Semitic (Hebrew/Aramaic) expression "(the) son of man". Focus is given primarily on the sayings in the Gospel of Luke, covering the journey to Jerusalem and the Passion and Resurrection narratives (i.e. from chapter 9 on). Each study deals with a specific saying (or group of sayings), examining the text and the historical-cultural background in detail. Study of these sayings is essential for a proper understanding of how Jesus viewed himself and how the earliest (Jewish) Christians thought of him as well.
Both the Study series and the additional notes function as a Commentary in the program, and can be accessed by verse directly under the Commentary menu.
We hope that you will find these studies to be rewarding, provocative, and inspiring!
