it might be secondary, or very deep, but did you ever consider the difference of reaction between the Pharisees and the guards arresting Jesus on “Ego eimi”?
58Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.” 59Therefore they picked up stones to throw at Him, but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple.
4 Jesus, knowing everything that was going to happen to him, went out and said to them, “Whom are you looking for?” 5 They answered him, “Jesus the Nazorean.”[d] He said to them, “I AM.” Judas his betrayer was also with them. 6 When he said to them, “I AM,” they turned away and fell to the ground.
And there would be the reaction of Peter on the boat, too. What are you thoughts, or arguments, or infos?
