Jesus referred to Himself as the Son of Man more than anything else. "Who is this Son of Man?" was a question He was asked from the crowd at one point. The answer begins in the Garden of Eden with the prophecy that the seed of the woman would crush the serpent's head, and flows through the scriptures like a stream with a definite destination. It is none other than the gospel story of a coming Messiah who would be both a Son of Man and Immanuel, God with us.
