                                         JESUS IS THE I AM

When God told Moses, "I am the one who always is,"
It meant that God has always existed and that he exists
in the eternal present, apart from time.

Jesus said the same thing, and it astonished everyone.

Like God, Jesus has always existed.
His life didn't begin in a stable in Bethlehem
    (that's when he became human).

Jesus is eternal, and that's why his offer of eternal life
for us is absolutely true.

"The truth is, I existed before Abraham was even born!"

John 8:58
