"God said...I AM WHO I AM." - Exodus 3:14

BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM

Jesus was constantly making religious people mad. What made them the angriest were His claims about Himself. He said, “I AM the bread of life,” and “I AM the light of this world,” meaning enlightenment. He said, “I AM the way,” meaning the way to God. He said, “I AM the truth. I AM the life,” meaning the key to eternal life. He said, “Before Abraham was, I AM.”

Now, these are definite claims to be God. These were outrageous statements and were the major reason that Jesus was executed. The religious people saw Him as a blasphemer, claiming to be God.

Whatever you do, don’t commit intellectual suicide by claiming you think Jesus was a good man, or prophet, or good teacher, but not God. Our only rational conclusion can be that He was an idiot, a megalomaniac who lied, or He is who He claimed to be. I believe He told the truth about Himself.
