How do the names "Son of man" and "Son of God" speak of Jesus' two natures?



If a person claims to believe in Jesus as his Savior, must he also believe in Him as his Lord?

Why? How will this reveal itself in the fruits of his life?

Three other well-known names of the Mediator are:

1. Son of Man - Jesus frequently referred to Himself by this title. The name expresses His humanity - the birth, sufferings, death, and resurrection of His human nature.

2. Son of God - This name refers to Christ in the following three ways:

"Son Of God" Refers To Christ's:

a. Birth - speaking of the origin of Christ's human nature as divine

And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

- Luke 1:35

b. Offices - as the Messiah, God's promised heir and representative

Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

- Hebrews 10:29

c. Divinity - as the eternal Son of the Father

All things are delivered unto Me of My Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him.

- Matthew 11:27

3. Lord - This name testifies of Christ in the following manners:

"Lord" Refers To Christ As Being:

a. Human - referring to Him in a polite and respectful manner

And behold, there came a leper and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, if Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean.

- Matthew 8:2

b. Natural owner - having natural ownership or authority

And if any man say aught unto you, ye shall say, the Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.

- Matthew 21:3

c. Supreme, divine owner

For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

- Luke 2:11
