The human being : Jesus and the enigma of the Son of the Man by Walter Wink( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The epithet 'the son of the man' (or 'the Human Being') in the Gospels has been a highly debated topic. Wink uses this phrase to explore not only early Christology but the anthropology articulated in the Gospels. Jesus apparently avoided designations such as Messiah, Son of God, or God, though these titles were given by his disciples after his death and resurrection. But Jesus is repeatedly depicted as using the obscure expression 'the Human Being' as virtually his only form of self-reference. Wink explores how Jesus' self-referential phrase came to be universalized as the 'Human Being' or 'Truly Human One.' The Human Being is a catalytic agent for transformation, providing the form and lure and hunger to become who we were meant to be, or more properly perhaps, to become who we truly are. The implications of this are profound, Wink argues. We are freed to go on the journey that Jesus charted rather than to worship the journey of Jesus. We can rescue Jesus from the baggage of christological beliefs added by the church. We are enabled to strip away the heavy accretion of dogma that installed Jesus as the second person of the trinity. Now he can be available to anyone seeking to realize the Human Being within. Jesus becomes uniquely a criterion of humanness. He shows us something of what it means to become human, but not enough to keep us from having to discover our true humanity ourselves
