Gr. Kurios. The first occurrence of the word is applied to Jesus with His evident sanction. In itself the word means "master," and is so used of mere human relationships in, e.g. Mt 6:24 15:27 Mk 13:35 Eph 6:9 Both uses, divine and human, are brought together in Col 4:1. It is the Gr. equivalent of the Heb. "Adonai." See Scofield Note: "Gen 15:2", and is Song used by Jesus Christ in Mt 22:43-35. In the N.T. the distinctive uses of Kurios (Lord) are:
(1) As the N.T. translation of the Heb. Jehovah (Lord), e.g. Mt 1:20,22 2:15 3:3 4:7,10 11:25 21:9 Mk 12:29,30 Lk 1:68 2:9
(2) Jesus Himself Song uses Kurios, e.g. Mt 4:7,10 11:25 Mk 12:11.
(3) But the great use of Kurios is as the divine title of Jesus, the Christ. In this sense it occurs in the N.T. 663 times. That the intent is to identify Jesus Christ with the O.T. Deity is evident from Mt 3:3 12:8 21:9 Ps 118:26 Mt 22:43-45 Lk 1:43 Jn 8:58 14:8-10 Jn 20:28 Acts 9:5 13:33. (Psa.2.). See Scofield Note: "Jn 20:28".

 Son of man
See Scofield Note: "Ezek 2:1". Our Lord thus designates Himself about eighty times. It is His racial name as the representative Man, in the sense of 1Cor 15:45-47 as Son of David is distinctly his Jewish name, and Son of God His divine name. Our Lord constantly uses this term as implying that his mission (e.g.) Mt 11:19 Lk 19:10. His death and resurrection (e.g.) Mt 12:40 20:18 26:2 and His second coming (e.g.) Mt 24:37-44 Lk 12:40 transcended in scope and result all merely Jewish imitations. When Nathanael confesses him as "King of Israel," our Lord's answer is, "Thou shalt see greater things. . . the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man." When His messengers are cast out by the Jews, His thought leaps forward to the time when the Son of man shall come, not then to Israel only but to the race Mt 10:5,6 8:23. It is in this name, also, that universal judgment is committed to Him Jn 5:22,27. It is also a name indicating that in Him is fulfilled the O.T. foreview of blessing through a coming man. See Scofield Note: "Gen 1:26" Gen 3:15 12:3 Ps 8:4 80:17 Isa 7:14 9:6,7 32:2 Zech 13:7 Isa 32:2 Zech 13:7.
