It is essential to understand the origin, meaning, and use of the term "Son of Man" if the gospels are to be intelligently interpreted, but no phrase has in recent years caused so much scholarly debate and division of opinion. Dr Hooker studies the term and the concepts associated with it in the Old Testament, in I Enoch, and in other inter-testamental literature, and then examines the Marcan occurrences in the context of the Gospel as a whole, finding a coherent pattern throughout, in terms of which each occurrence has its proper relevqnce. The book thus offers a challenge to the present trend of interpretation which has recently been strengthened by the Studies of A.J.B. Higgins and H.E. Todt, but its conclusions are reached without conservative presuppositions, and with a thorough study of the evidence. The importance of this book for New Testament studies is assured.
Dr Hooker is Lecturer i New Testament Studies at King's College, London.
