The Son of Man (Lk 22:69-22:69)

“From now on,

The Son of Man

Will be seated

At the right hand

Of the power

Of God.”

ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν δὲ ἔσται ὁ Υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου καθήμενος ἐκ δεξιῶν τῆς δυνάμεως τοῦ Θεοῦ.

Luke indicated that Jesus said that from now on (ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν δὲ), the Son of Man (ὁ Υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου) would be seated (ἔσται…καθήμενος) at the right hand (ἐκ δεξιῶν) of the power of God (τῆς δυνάμεως τοῦ Θεοῦ).  This was like Matthew and Mark, but without any mention of the Son of Man coming on a heavenly cloud.  Matthew, chapter 26:64, indicated that Jesus gave them a warning with a solemn pronouncement (πλὴν λέγω ὑμῖν).  He told him that from now on (ἀπ’ ἄρτι), they would see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power, Yahweh, or God, the Father (ὄψεσθε τὸν Υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου καθήμενον ἐκ δεξιῶν τῆς δυνάμεως), coming on the clouds of heaven (καὶ ἐρχόμενον ἐπὶ τῶν νεφελῶν τοῦ οὐρανοῦ).  Mark, chapter 14:62, said that Jesus told him that they would see the Son of Man (καὶ ὄψεσθε τὸν Υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου) seated at the right hand of the Power, (ἐκ δεξιῶν καθήμενον τῆς δυνάμεως).  He would come with the clouds of heaven (καὶ ἐρχόμενον μετὰ τῶν νεφελῶν τοῦ οὐρανοῦ).  Jesus gave a strong theological response that the end times were near when the Son of Man, himself, would appear at the right hand of the Father in the heavenly clouds.  Despite his protestation that he would not answer their questions, Jesus turned around and issued a solemn pronouncement that the end times was approaching.  Do you think that the end times are near?
