About the Book

This book explores the seven “I Am” metaphors of Christ, as recorded in John’s Gospel account. Additional insights from both the literary context of the surrounding passage, as well as the cultural / historical context in which Jesus taught, will help the reader to better understand and apply these teachings. More extensive commentaries on both the first and last statements are also offered since they have been widely misunderstood — including Christ as the “Bread of Life” (John 6) and as the “True Vine” (John 15). Whether you are a Christian believer or not, this book has much for everyone!
