Jesus was equating himself with the i am title god gave himself in exodus 314 if jesus had merely wanted to say he existed before abrahams time he would have said before abraham i was the greek words translated was in the case of abraham and am in the case of jesus are quite different. Jesus was especially self revealing in his i am statements found in the gospels specifically in the book of john these descriptive statements explain the character and nature of god through significant phrases that all begin with i am these are not jesus only statements about himself but they stand out in a unique way. When jesus used the phrase i am he made specific revelations regarding his identity and nature these revelations made it clear to all that he was claiming to be much more than a rabbi or prophet jesus claimed to be the messiah god in human form in johns gospel jesus makes seven references to himself using i am. And jesus said to them i am the bread of life he who comes to me shall never hunger and he who believes in me shall never thirst john 635 jesus spoke these words after a quiet night alone in the wilderness
