Jesus says: “The foxes have holes and the birds have their nests but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head and rest.”
We should be careful here not to read this saying through the lens of later Gospels like Matthew and Luke which tend to frame this saying around Jesus specifically. The term “Son of Man” is most likely a reference to “the sons of Adam” or simply “mankind” in general.
If we can read it with new eyes, we might find that what Jesus is saying is that the animals – foxes and birds – have found their place of rest here in the earth. But we – the ones made in the image of God – are better than this. We are not satisfied with a place of rest made of sticks or a hovel in the earth we’ve dug out for ourselves as a shelter from the storm. No, as “sons of men” or “children of God”, we are only satisfied when we find our rest in God and God alone. Our home is not here in this world, since this world is a corpse [See saying 56].
