What did Jesus say about Himself

What Did Jesus say about Himself

Here’s what Jesus said about Himself, along with relevant Bible verses and three main takeaways with their titles bolded:

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus made several profound claims about His identity and nature. Here are some relevant verses:

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

“I and the Father are one.” (John 10:30)

“Before Abraham was born, I am!” (John 8:58)

Three Main Takeaways:

  1. Divinity Claimed: Jesus claimed to be one with God the Father, sharing the same divine nature and essence, even using the sacred name “I AM” which echoes God’s self-revelation to Moses.
  2. Exclusive Path to God: Jesus declared that He is the only way to the Father and to eternal life, making an exclusive claim to be the sole mediator between God and humanity.
  3. Pre-Existence Affirmed: Jesus affirmed His pre-existence before Abraham, indicating that He existed before His incarnation and has always been part of the Godhead.

In these and other statements, Jesus made bold claims about His divinity, His unique role in salvation, and His eternal nature as part of the Trinity. His words challenged the religious leaders and left no room for interpreting Him as merely a good teacher or prophet.
