Did Jesus Claim to be the "I Am" in John 8.58? [36:25]
by Victor Gluckin rated at 1.6 (6 votes so far)
John 8 contains insight into the identity of Jesus. Did he really use the title 'I AM' to refer his hearers back to God's encounter with Moses at the burning bush (Exodus 3.14) or is this an instance where translation bias has twisted the Scripture? Why is it that the same Greek phrase is translated just nine verses later as "I am the one" when it is found on the lips of the blind man?

Does Everyone Believe in the Trinity

It is customary for students of the Bible to refer to Jesus as God and to insist that belief in a Trinity of three co-equal, co-eternal Persons in the One God is the hallmark of true faith. Many recognized Bible scholars do not think, however, that Jesus is called God, in a Trinitarian sense, in the Scriptures. Distinguished experts on the Bible, past and present, maintain that the doctrine of a Tri-personal God is nowhere taught in Scripture.
