Human Being
by Walter Wink




Overview -

A thorny historical issue handled with artistry and imaginationThe 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.
