Why is Jesus referred to as 'the son of man'

Report as

The reason why Jesus Christ is known as ‘the son of man’ is because he was born by a mortal. Jesus was born by Mary through Immaculate Conception and that is why the phrase is used.

Because he came as FLESH.
All man is flesh.

Have you ever watched that Narnia, where the freaky chick calls the kids "son of Adam", meaning they were human.

This is similiar in the sense he was born as Flesh, of flesh.

Because he was human. 100% human, and only human. Son of Man is a Hebrew idiom, literally translates Ben Adam (where Adam is both the name of the first human and the Hebrew word for human) - son of Adam which then means a human. It has always been used in Hebrew to denote a human, with no connotation ever to anything nonhuman, beyond human, or divine. Jesus used that idiom, and countless others too. It didn't refer just to Jesus, any other human can and have been referred to in Hebrew using the same idiom.

If you've read the bible he also uses the term "the son of God"

Question was about "son of man", not about "son of God". And no, he was 100% human, 0% god. God is 100% God, and 0% human.
