Something to think about

Peter R was leading the service on sunday and lead us in a bible study discussion of mat 14. Towards the end there was a verse where the disciples exclaimed, after seeing christ walking on water, surely this is the Son of God. Peter asked what do you think they meant by that. Which is really interesting, cos I'm sure it would be something completely different to what we understand from the phrase. What would a jew and disciple of Jesus mean by that phrase, as they don't fully understand who Jesus is at that moment. Would that have been a blasphamous phrase, or a common phrase to heap praise on a good man. Peter pointed out to me after the service that Christ always referred to himself as the Son of Man, which relates to a prophecy in Daniel.
