Dear List - Does anyone have any thoughts about the use of the double article in hO hUIOS TOU ANQRWPOU which Jesus used of himself many times?  He even asked the newly healed man who had been born blind, if he knew who "The son of the man is". Stephen used it too when he saw Jesus at the right side of God.
In Daniel 7, Revelation 14 and Ezekiel 37 no definite article is used for "son of man".
Could it be some Jewish 'code speak' for Messiah, "The man" being perhaps understood to be David or maybe Adam?
