the writer indicates that those universal features are obvious during the Son of guy sayings in John's Gospel. The context and the translation of those sayings element to an knowing of the Johannine Son of guy just like these within the interpretations of the Danielic determine. even though, although those similarities exist, the Johannine determine is exact from the former interpretations, simply as they're specific from each other. One visible distinction is the current truth of the Son of Man's position in judgment and salvation.
