Although the phrase “son of man” appears more than 100 times in the Jewish Scriptures, in one striking passage it is describing the Messiah coming with the clouds of Heaven to the Ancient of days. Why does the Messiah appear in Daniel’s dream “like a son of man”? Why is he arriving with the clouds of Heaven? Who is the Ancient of Days? Why do Christians argue that this verse refers to Jesus? In this provocative broadcast, Rabbi Tovia Singer illuminates one of the most provocative and least understood passages in the Hebrew Scriptures. He illustrates that this enigmatic text describes an epic event that will unfold in the Messianic Age.
