Wesley's Notes for John 8:24


8:24 If ye believe not that I AM - Here (as in #John 8:58|) our Lord claims the Divine name, I AM, #Exod 3:14|. But the Jews, as if he had stopped short, and not finished the sentence, answered, Who art thou?

    Jesus is a good Shepherd He will always lay down his life to his Sheep's. We as his Sheeps when we Follow Jesus we will never walk in a darkness because Jesus is a light of the world in him there is no darkness but a light to our life. A Sheep knows his voice, Jesus came down NOT for the righteousness but for the sinners. Lets give thanks to his blood and praise him amen

    When Moses was up in the mountain to receive the 10 Commandments , he asked God who he was ,to which he replied I am . All throughout the book of John , Jesus would say "I am" which should have been a clue to the Jews who he was, but Satan blinded them and blocked their ears from hearing the truth . To this day Satan is still blocking them from seeing
