“And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.” John 17:5 (ESV)

In the New Testament, Jesus’ favorite reference to Himself is “the Son of Man,” leading many to believe and question whether Jesus perceived himself to be the “Son of God.”
