Jesus said in John 8, “Amen, Amen, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.”
It’s no wonder they wanted to kill Jesus. He just said that He’s God.
But this wasn’t for His sake. Jesus isn’t puffing himself up. It is for your and my sake that Jesus says this, so that you may believe in Him.
Jesus is true God so that all of His life may be given to you. Jesus is true God so that His death may be your death so that sin will no longer have mastery over you. Jesus is true God so that the devil and hell are eternally defeated and cannot harm you eternally.
Amen, Amen, I say to you if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death.
