Did Jesus Call Himself the "I Am?" [1 page]
by Jay Dicken rated at 1.0 (5 votes so far)
Was Jesus applying the title I AM to himself? Interestingly, someone other than Jesus uses this exact same Greek phrase only ten verses later. At John 9:9 a man whom Jesus had healed also says “I am.” [ego eimi] Should we conclude that this man is part of a triune God? Certainly not, so the simple statement I am does not prove deity.
These books, written by people from diverse backgrounds, express the simple truth that God is one. Some of them are more scholary while others are more autobiographical. In addition, a few of them are available to read online. If you would like more in depth treatment of christian monotheism, these books are the next step to take.
