Did Jesus Live BEFORE Abraham?


The speaker reflects on their love for reading about Jesus in the Bible, particularly the Gospel of John, which they read twice a year. They delve into a challenging statement made by Jesus in John 8:58, “Before Abraham was, I am,” examining its context and implications. Through analysing the conversation in John chapter 8, the speaker argues that Jesus was claiming authority and preeminence over Abraham as the promised Messiah. They assert that Jesus’ statement signifies his role in God’s plan, not a literal existence before Abraham. This interpretation aligns with the broader context of Scripture, which doesn’t support a physical pre-existence of Jesus. The speaker concludes with a reminder of Jesus’ mercy and the importance of considering difficult passages in light of the Bible’s entirety.
