There are seven “I am” statements by Jesus recorded in John’s Gospel. In order they are: 1) I am the bread of life, 2) I am the light of the world, I am… 3) the door, 4) the Good Shepherd, 5) the resurrection and the life, 6) the way, the truth, and the life, and 7) I am the true vine. Just with those statements alone, we eliminate all consider-ation of Jesus merely being a great teacher or fine moral example. This is an unmistakable claim to being deity…
14How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? 15And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!"
