I AM I Said

I AM I Said

John, in his gospel, quotes Jesus several times making “I AM” statements.  Some of these are self-identification statements of Jesus proclaiming his divinity.  He says in 8:58, “Very truly, I tell you, before Abraham was, I am.”

In other instances, Jesus said “I AM”  (1) “the bread of life” John 6:35,  (2) “the light of the world” John 8:12, (3) “the gate” John 10:9, (4) “the good shepherd” John 10:11, (5) “the resurrection and the life” John 11:25, (6) “the way, and the truth, and the life” John 14:6, (7)the vine” John 15:5.  In these statements Jesus is revealing what he is like, what his purposes are, and attributes of his character.  

These “I AM” statements serve as an invitation to come to know this Great I AM intimately. Join us as we explore the “I AM” in John.
