The title Son of Man has received less attention in relation to the Gospel of John than to the Synoptic Gospels. In the fourth Gospel, the phrase functions as a self-designation of some kind for Jesus. It draws upon the use and imagery associated with the Son of Man in Ezekiel, Daniel, and 1 Enoch. Differing from the synoptic presentations, the title in the Gospel of John describes the origin, authority, and exaltation of Jesus.
