Jesus' declaration as 'I Am' presented a dilemma for the Jews, as noted by their response, in the book of John 8:59, when they took up stones to kill Him. However, Jesus' words, chosen by the Spirit, not only equated Him with the title that God gave Himself, but as existing eternally: as it is written in the book of John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. I Am was also the declaration made to Moses when ,"Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you (Exodus 3:13-14). There are many scriptures in the Bible declaring Jesus as I Am. Jesus' declaration as I Am, simply put, means He is all that's needed for the world to receive salvation.
I am the bread of life: he that come to me shall never hunger; and he that believe on me shall never thirst (John 6:35). I am the light of the world: he that follow me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life (John 8:12). Before Abraham was, I am (John 8:58). I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd give his life for the sheep (John 10:9,11). I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believe in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live (John 11:25). I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man come unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6 ). I am the vine, you are the branches: He that abide in me, and I in him, the same bring forth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing (John 15:5). I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty (Revelation 1:8). It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely (Revelation 21:6). Jesus is our Savior.
