The second is from John, chapter 8:
Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day, and he saw it and was glad.” 57Then the Jewish leaders asked him, “You are not even 50 years old, yet you have seen Abraham?” 58Jesus told them, “Truly, I tell all of you emphatically, before there was an Abraham, I AM!” 59At this, they picked up stones to throw at him, but Jesus hid himself and went out of the Temple.
Again, the Jews attempted to stone Him, because He called Himself by God’s name. This name “I AM” comes from the third chapter of Exodus where Moses encounters God in the burning bush:
1Meanwhile, Moses continued tending the sheep that belonged to his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of Midian. He led the sheep to the western desert and came to Horeb, God’s mountain, where 2the angel of the LORD appeared to him in flaming fire from the center of a bush. As Moses continued to watch, amazingly the bush kept on burning, but was not consumed. 3Then Moses told himself, “I’ll go over and see this remarkable sight. Why isn’t the bush burning up?”
4When the LORD saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from the center of the bush, “Moses! Moses!”
He said, “Here I am.”
5“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Remove your sandals from your feet, because the place where you are standing is holy ground.” 6Then he said, “I am the God of your ancestors, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.
7The LORD said, “I have certainly seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and I have heard their cry caused by their slave masters. I really do understand their pain, 8so I have come down to deliver them from their domination byg the Egyptians and to bring them out of that land to a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey, to the territoryh of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites. 9Now, listen carefully! The cry of the Israelis has come to my attention about how severely the Egyptians have been oppressing them. 10So go! I am sending you to Pharaoh. Bring my people the Israelis out of Egypt.”
11But Moses told God, “Who am I? How can I go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelis out of Egypt?”
12Then God said, “I certainly will be with you. And this will be the sign for you that it is I who sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, all of you will serve God on this mountain.”
13Moses told God, “Look! When I go to the Israelis and tell them, ‘The God of your ancestors sent me to you,’ they’ll say to me, ‘What is his name?’ What should I say to them?”
14God replied to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM,” and then said, “Tell the Israelis: ‘I AM sent me to you.’”
15God also told Moses, “Tell the Israelis, ‘The LORD, the God of your ancestors, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and this is how I am to be remembered from generation to generation.
