Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.” (John 4:26 NASB)
I am told by some, that Jesus never claimed deity, but right here He claims to be Messiah, the anointed One, the One who is coming, the One who would declare all things.
He does, nevertheless use this phrase “I AM” to talk about Himself at every turn, in just the same way God declares throughout the Old Testament that His name is “I AM.”
I actually wrote extensively about this in my Lord’s Prayer series last year. They were actually written before I was on WordPress, so many here may not have seen them.
Below are the links. Take a look. Meditating on the Name of Jesus always does me good.
See you again soon.
