Samuel Whitefield is an author.
Rarely in the history of theological writing and biblical exegesis has a book emerged that makes its point so clearly, yet one that is most foundational to the content of the Gospel: namely, that Jesus wanted His people Israel and the nations of the world to recognize Him as "the Son of Man" as announced in Daniel 7 and repeated some 78 times in the Gospels with an added 53 associated themes that also came from Daniel 7. I was personally enriched and corrected as this title of The Son of Man was biblically shown to take precedence over all other titles and functions of our Lord in Scripture, such as Messiah or the Son of God. Surely, this book will offer one of the richest rewards for all who will carefully follow the truth of this title from Daniel 7 as demonstrated by Jesus. I can hardly find the adequate words to commend this book as highly as I think it should be received and shared broadly in our day and age.Dr. Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., President Emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Hamilton, MAThere is absolutely nothing greater in the Christian life than when the Holy Spirit reveals Jesus Christ through the Word of God. One phrase from one verse can open up a door of revelation where all you can say is, "I've never seen this before," "This is absolutely astounding," or "This changes everything." I believe that the revelation of Jesus as The Son of Man changes everything. I watched how the Holy Spirit took this phrase out of Daniel 7 and began to take Samuel on a journey into the ocean of revelation and implication surrounding this phrase. Samuel provoked me because I had never seen it before. He challenged me because the Holy Spirit was calling me to go deeper. And He taught me and gave me insight and understanding into one of the most overlooked, misunderstood, and yet absolutely critical revelations for the end-time church. In 1 Peter 1, we read that the prophets of old inquired and searched carefully of that which was coming, and I believe Samuel is in the same spirit as he has written this book. This book will become one of the central books to the church in the coming days. I cannot overemphasize our need to give ourselves to it today.Corey Russell, Author and Speaker, Dallas, TXFor as long as I've known my friend Samuel, he's always been the guy that's looking at things from an angle that you didn't see, but then after he unpacks what he's observing, I always think to myself: Why didn't I see that? It was sitting right in front of me! Samuel's new book, Son of Man: The Gospel of Daniel 7, read exactly this way when I picked it up-a theological adventure of looking at Daniel, Jesus, and the Kingdom of God. At the end of the book, all of these things were clearer and more alive in my mind and my heart than before the reading began. Be prepared to be challenged, stretched, and stirred as God's kingdom comes to light in a fresh way!Jim Stern, Lead Pastor, Destiny Church of St. Louis
