Bible - 18 Ego Eimi (I AM) statements, like John 8:58

bible300

Jesus was the God 'I AM'

In the Old Testament, one of Gods names is 'I AM'. Jesus used the 'I AM' name for himself. Therefore, many Christians now believe Jesus claimed divinity as the God of the Old Testament.

The table below lists a few Bible verses where 'Ego Eimi' (I Am) is used.


John 8:58 1 of 18
And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM (Ego Eimi) hath sent me unto you.
Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM (Ego Eimi)
Ehyeh-Asher-Ehyeh (Greek: 'Ego Eimi', English: 'I Am') is considered to be one of the Seven Names of God according to Jewish tradition.
Trinitarian Christians interpret Exodus 3:14 and John 8:58 as evidence for the divinity of Jesus Christ (i.e. Jesus claimed he was 'I AM' or Yahweh of the Old Testament).

Catholics hold the God, who reveals his name as "I AM", reveals himself as the God who is always there, present to his people in order to save them. Catechism of the Catholic Church 207
Ego eimi ["I am"] does not identify Jesus with God, but it does draw attention to him in the strongest possible terms. 'I am the one - the one you must look at, and listen to, if you would know God.' C.K Barrett, The Gospel According to St John (Westminster Press 1978), p.342
John 4:26 2 of 18
Then Jesus declared, 'I, the one speaking to you - I AM (Ego Eimi) he'
Jesus says to the woman at the well, I am, the one speaking to you.
John 6:20 3 of 18
But he saith unto them, IT IS (Ego Eimi) I; be not afraid
Jesus informs his disciples not to be frightened in the boat.
John 6:35 4 of 18
Then Jesus declared, 'I AM (Ego Eimi) the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty'
Jesus tells his disciples to follow his way through a bread and hunger parable.
John 8:24 5 of 18
I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I AM (Ego Eimi) he, ye shall die in your sins
Jesus tells his disciples to follow him or die in sin.
John 8:28 6 of 18
So Jesus said, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I AM (Ego Eimi) he and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me
Jesus tells his disciples to honour him and that his teachings are a revelation from the Father.
John 9:9 7 of 18
Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I AM (Ego Eimi) he
We find the man who had been healed of his blindness insisting that he was indeed the man of whom they spoke of.
The blind man claims I AM (Ego Eimi) he. Does this mean the blind-man is God too?
John 10:11 8 of 18
I AM (Ego Eimi) the good shepherd
Jesus claims to be a good shepherd.
John 13:19 9 of 18
I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I AM WHO I AM (Ego Eimi). Very truly I tell you, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me
Jesus tells his disciples to believe in him and his message. In the next verse Jesus makes the clear distinction between himself and the one who sent him (i.e. the Father). If Jesus was the Almighty God, why does he refer to another God who sent him?
John 18:5-8 10 of 18
They answered Him, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus said to them, "I AM (Ego Eimi) he." And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stood with them. Now when He said to them, "I AM (Ego Eimi) he" they drew back and fell to the ground. Then He asked them again, "Whom are you seeking?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus answered, "I have told you that I AM (Ego Eimi) he. Therefore, if you seek Me, let these go their way."
Jesus confirms his presence, as a man sent by God, the Father.
Mark 6:50 11 of 18
For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: IT IS I (Ego Eimi); be not afraid
Jesus is re-assuring people who are afraid that it is him.
Mark 13:6 12 of 18
For many shall come in my name, saying, I AM (Ego Eimi) Christ; and shall deceive many
Jesus forewarns the people of false prophets to come in the future.
Matthew 14:27 13 of 18
But Jesus immediately said to them: "Take courage! IT IS I (Ego Eimi). Don't be afraid."
Jesus is re-assuring people who are afraid that it is him.
Matthew 26:22 14 of 18
And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is IT I (Ego Eimi)?
Matthew 26:25 15 of 18
Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is IT I (Ego Eimi)? He said unto him, Thou hast said.
Judas is asking if he is Ego Eimi. Judas used the word Ego Eimi.
Does this make Judas a God?
Luke 21:8 16 of 18
And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I AM HE (Ego Eimi) Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them
Acts 10:21 17 of 18
Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I AM HE (Ego Eimi) whom ye seek: what is the cause wherefore ye are come?
Peter says the words I AM HE (Ego Eimi).
Does this make Peter a God?
Acts 26:29 18 of 18
And Paul said, I would to God, that not only thou, but also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I AM (Ego Eimi), except these bonds
Paul is using the words I AM (Ego Eimi).
Does this make Paul a God?
SUMMARY
The Greek words 'Ego Eimi' (I Am) are used in many verses in the Bible. They are regular sentences with straightforward literal interpretations.

Also, a number of Biblical characters using the words 'Ego Eimi', namely Paul, Peter and Judas. By the same logic applied to John 8:58, Paul, Peter and Judas by virtue of simply uttering these words would have be declared as the God of the Old Testament.
