Where in the bible does Christ state that he is God?


#1

Hello. I just wanted to ask if there is any verse in the bible wherein Jesus himself said that he is God? :wink: :confused: :eek:

See John 8:57-58:

"The Jews then said to him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?” Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.”

The Jews, being familiar with the Old Testament, understood Jesus to be stating that he was God. Compare his statement to God’s in Exodus 3:14:

God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM.’ And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, `I AM has sent me to you.’”

For more on this see The Divinity of Christ.
