Why is Jesus Called “Son of Man”?

Jesus is both divine and human, yet “Son of Man” was his favorite self-designation. Why didn’t he prefer being called “Son of God” instead? Pastor John Piper will explain that “Son of Man” has the double meaning of human being and, according to Daniel 7, exalted heavenly one. And Jesus means to communicate both of those.
