The Day They Busted Jesus For Blasphemy And Bad Grammar

I AMJesus and Jewish rulers were bickering on the Mount of Olives. Jesus said He and the Father were one. They called Him demon possessed. Jesus told them they didn’t belong to God. They said He was a liar.

Then Jesus lowered the boom. “Before Abraham was, I AM.” What? Committing blasphemy and bad grammar in one sentence. “He mixes verb tenses,” they must have mumbled. “And He claims to be God.”

Jesus was probably harkening back to Moses at the burning bush. Moses asked God what name he should give to the God who was sending him to the Israelites. “This is what you should say to the Israelites, ‘I AM has sent me to you.” Exodus 3:14-15.

Aren’t you grateful today that God is the Great I AM? That means He is before Abraham, He is here with us now. He will never leave us or forsake us because He will always be.

And we will always be with Him!

I’m taking time today to thank God for being the Great I AM. And meditate on that Wonderful Name, “I AM that I AM.”
