Who is coming “on the clouds” is a group of people just as the danielic Son of Man represents all Israel.
But this group is the gentile army coming to conquer the Judea and sent by God himself to punish the Jews.
In this sense, could Jesus be predicting the Roman invasion of the Judea?
So Jesus is saying that the gentile “Israel” is now in the grace of God and this new Israel will be to judge the world.
This introduces an anti-thesis between the danielic Son of Man, interpreted as the old Daniel, and the new Son of Man, the Church.
Discussion about the New Testament, apocrypha, gnostics, church fathers, Christian origins, historical Jesus or otherwise, etc.
