I AM = eimi (I exist-always. No beginning or end.). John’s gospel has two sets of “I am” sayings of Jesus. One set declares Jesus’ divinity:
`I am, who is speaking to you.'
They were afraid; and he said to them,
`I am, be not afraid;'
Jesus, therefore, said to them, ‘When you may lift up
the Son of Man then you will know that I am.’
Jesus said to them, `Truly, I say to you, Before Abraham's coming--I am;'
`From this time I tell you, before its coming to pass, that,
when it may come to pass, you may believe that I am.’
`Whom do ye seek?' they answered him, `Jesus the Nazarene;'
Jesus said to them, `I am.”
