Did Jesus Say “I Am God”?

This article covers the answer to the question: “Did Jesus Say ‘I Am God’?

Some people claim Jesus is God and use (John 8:58) to support their views;

“I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”

The same people then link the Verse (Exodus 3:14) to try to justify that Jesus is God;

“God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. [1] This is what you are to say to the Israelites:

“I AM has sent me to you.'”

Now Jesus Saying “I am” is Not saying “I AM GOD

Before and after (Exodus 3:14), God clarifies that “I-AM-THE-GOD-OF-ABRAHAM”

God says the phrase “I-AM-GOD-” about 200 times in the Bible while Jesus in his over 30 years on earth never said that.

The High Priest Melchizedek in the Bible is Also Before Abraham and According to the Bible {Hebrews 7:1-4};

“..Had not Beginning and no End, had no parents..”

Furthermore, if we look at a Bible Hebrew Dictionary, we can look up the Phrase “I AM” hayah {haw-yaw} in Hebrew and see that it Means;

“was, come to pass, came, has been, were happened, become, pertained, better for thee

1) to be, become, come to pass, exist, happen, fall out
1a) to happen, fall out, occur, take place, come about, come to pass
1b) to come about, come to pass

2) to come into being, become
2a) to arise, appear, come
2b) to become
2b1) to become
2b3) to be instituted, be established

3) to be
3a) to exist, be in existence
3b) to abide, remain, continue (with word of place or time)
3c) to stand, lie, be in, be at, be situated (with word of locality)
3d) to accompany, be with”

The Phrase “I AM” hayah {haw-yaw} is Used 72 times in the Hebrew Bible by a number of Prophets including (David, Moses, etc…)

The Phrase ” I-AM-GOD “‘Elohiym {el-o-heem’} is Used 200 times in the Bible, Never by Any Prophets.

Furthermore, in the Gospel of John, Jesus is recorded to have said “ego eimi” Not “Hayah” Two completely different words in completely different languages, but both translated into English as “I_am”

Why then didn’t Jesus also say “Hayah” (I_am) the same way God said “Hayah”?

There is no exception that Jesus would say “ego eimi” instead of “Hayah” because the Gospel does also use some Hebrew words, for example ;

(a) “Hossana” – Matthew 21:9
(b) “Eli, Eli, Lama Sabachthani” – Matthew 27:46
(c) “Rabbi” – John 3:2 (d) “Talitha cumi” – Mark 5:41

Therefore with a Statement as grand as “I_am”, Jesus (if he said it) would have said “Hayah” like God said “Hayah”

Instead, Jesus says “ego eimi” which is not what God said.
This proves that Jesus did Not say “I_am” like God said “I AM”

Also, this phrase appears in John, but Not in Luke, Mark, or Matthew.
On the other hand, God says “I-AM-GOD” in almost Every Book and Chapter in the Torah, why does Only John record Jesus saying “I am” and this incredible revealing quote is Not Documented by Mark, Matthew, or Luke?

Wouldn’t such an important saying be recorded by the Three others and why is it only recorded by 1.

Why haven’t the Three ~Earlier~ Gospels record this verse and Only the Later ‘John’ write this? I would say that Majority Rules, Right?

If Three Accepted and Accredited Gospels Do Not have the verse, and Only 1 does, then we have to question if Jesus really said such a thing (especially something as Grand as this which the Other Three would Surely Not have missed if it was Truly Said), Right?

The phrase that some people highlight to suggest that Jesus is God, doesn’t even appear in 2 out of the 4 Gospels, Only in the (later written) John.

God said the Phrase “I-AM-GOD” just to about everyone, Jesus appears to have said “I_am” (“ego eimi” Not “Hayah”) to only John, why weren’t the Other Three told or even at least Record that John was told?
