When the apostle John hears a voice and sees Jesus, he sees "one like a Son of Man," and falls at His feet. Jesus confirms
John's identification, "Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am
alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades" (Rev 1:17-18).
Introduced by the prophet Daniel, the phrase "Son of Man" is portrayed as the future King who returns in a
spectacular manner (Dan 7:13-14).
