Today, Christ tells us unequivocally, that He is God, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, the Son of God. Those religions which deny that Christ is God, do not accept this passage, obviously.
Christ is either a liar, or a madman or really God, states C. S. Lewis, and I paraphrase.
We are faced with a choice today. Do we really believe in Christ as God, and take all His actions and words seriously, or, like some of the Jews of His day, reject the "I Am" statements?
The Jews wanted to kill Christ as they knew He was referring to the great epiphany to Moses--I Am.
Those who wanted to stone Christ for blasphemy were closed to the great I AM.
