Jesus’ most recent discourse has caused a lot of controversy. In introducing the first of the seven “I AM” statements, he is declaring in a very public way his equal status with God and role as judge over humanity. This not only causes division among the crowds and Jewish leaders, but even among his own disciples. This offensive nature of Jesus’ message is still present today and important to recognize and be ready to proclaim him, expecting rejection.
