Jesus said:

Before Abraham was, I am (John 8:58).

I am the way and the truth and the life ( John 11:25).

I am the light of the world (John 8:12).

I am the door (10:9).

I am the good shepherd (John 10:11).

I am the resurrection and the life (John 11:25).

I am the true vine ( John 15:1).

I am the bread of life (John 6:35).

In these verses, we hear the echo of God’s revelation of himself to Moses in Exodus 3:13-14:

Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?”…
This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.'”
