Title: The 'One Like a Son of Man' According to the Old Greek of Daniel 7,13-14
Author(s): REYNOLDS, Benjamin E.
Volume: 89 Issue: 1 Date: 2008
While studies of the Old Greek (OG) of Daniel 7,13-14 are not uncommon, they are often undertaken as part of a broader examination of the 'one like a son of man'. Rarely, if ever, do these studies focus on the description of this figure in the OG version and what readers of this version might have understood of this character. This study is an examination of the interpretation of OG Daniel 7,13-14, and the argument is made that the OG portrays the 'one like a son of man' as similar to the Ancient of Days and as a messianic figure.
