Jesus, the Son of Man (1928) is a poem by Kahlil Gibran.

Abstract

Jesus’ “words and deeds as told and recorded by those who knew him.” Jesus is presented as the incarnation of the very same moral principles Gibran had expressed in his major work, The Prophet (1923)—a poetic and philosophical work that has made him one of most read authors of all times.

Editions and translations
