Chapter Summary

The sayings of Jesus concerning the Son of Man are on the whole genuine sayings, expressing his consciousness of fulfilling the mission of the heavenly man. Jesus' message is understood as the announcement that, the prophecy of Deutero-Isaiah was being fulfilled, i.e. the eschatological Israel as the kingdom of God and the new Zion, including the redemption of Jerusalem but also salvation for the nations. The eschatological component is then essential if Jesus announces that the prophecy is being fulfilled for this generation, but Deutero-Isaiah certainly does not imply the coming of the kingdom "in a moment, in the winking of an eye". The place of the Gentiles in the eschatological expectations of Israel is seen clearly in the prophecy of Deutero-Isaiah. The term confession is of course a misnomer for Mark's gospel, as Peter says, but that he fulfills the role of the Son of Man.

Keywords: Deutero-Isaiah; eschatological Israel; Jerusalem; Mark's gospel; Peter
