8 February 2015 AD: Jesus "I am" Statements

Why does God of old and new testament seem to be different?

Matthew 19:7-8 “The Pharisees asked him, "Why, then, did Moses give the law for a man to hand his wife a divorce notice and send her away?" Jesus answered, "Moses gave you permission to divorce your wives because you are so hard to teach. But it was not like that at the time of creation”

1 Timothy 1:9-10 “It must be remembered, of course, that laws are made, not for good people, but for lawbreakers and criminals, for the godless and sinful, for those who are not religious or spiritual, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for the immoral, for sexual perverts, for kidnappers, for those who lie and give false testimony or who do anything else contrary to sound doctrine”

1 John 5:20 “And we know that the Son of God has come, and He has given to us an understanding that we may know the true One, and we are in the true One, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and the life everlasting.

John 14:8-9 “And Philip said to Him, Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us. Jesus said to him, Am I so long a time with you, and you have not known Me, Philip? The one seeing Me has seen the Father! And how do you say, Show us the Father?”

I Am Now

Exodus 3:14 “And God said to Moses, I AM THAT I AM; and He said, You shall say this to the sons of Israel, I AM has sent me to you”

John 6:51 “I am the Living Bread that came down from Heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he will live forever. And indeed the bread which I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world”

John 8:12 “Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, I am the Light of the world. The one following Me will in no way walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life”

John 8:23 “And He said to them, You are from below; I am from above. You are from this world; I am not from this world”

John 8:56-58 “Your father Abraham leaped for joy that he should see My day, and he saw, and rejoiced. Then the Jews said to Him, You do not yet have fifty years, and have You seen Abraham? Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Before Abraham came to be, I AM!”

John 10:9 “I am the door. If anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in, and will go out, and will find pasture”

John 10:11 “I am the Good Shepherd! The Good Shepherd lays down His life on behalf of the sheep”

John 10:36 “Do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, You blaspheme, because I said, I am Son of God?”

John 11:25 “Jesus said to her, I am the Resurrection and the Life. The one believing into Me, though he die, he shall live”

John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”

John 15:5 “I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one abiding in Me, and I in him, this one bears much fruit, because apart from Me you are not able to execute, nothing”

Psalm 80:14-15 “God of the angel armies, turn our way! Take a good look at what's happened and attend to this vine. Care for what you once tenderly planted-- the vine you raised from a shoot”

John 18:6 “Then when He said to them, I AM, they departed into the rear and fell to the ground”

I Am Eternal

John 1:18 “No one has ever seen God, not so much as a glimpse. This one-of-a-kind God-Expression, who exists at the very heart of the Father, has made him plain as day”

Colossians 1:15 “We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God's original purpose in everything created”

Revelation 1:11 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last”
