Though various summaries of the Son of Man debate have been attempted in the past thirty years, a disparity of views remain. In particular, recent summaries fail to adumbrate specific areas of consensus and disagreement and provide possible directions for future discussion. Most scholars concur, nonetheless, that the current debate hinges on at least two matters: the use and interpretation of the philological evidence, and the existence or nonexistence of a pre-Christian, Jewish, messianic concept. Others would add a third hinge, arguing that the validation and use of exegetical criteria are connected intricately to recent discussion.
