Before Abraham Was

“…Jesus’ friends and enemies were staggered again and again by what he said and did.

He would be walking down the road, seemingly like any other man, then turn and say something like, ‘Before Abraham was, I am.’

Or, ‘If you have seen me, you have seen the Father.’ Or, very calmly, after being accused of blasphemy, he would say, ‘The Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.’

To the dead he might simply say, ‘Come forth,’ or, ‘Rise up.’ And they would obey.

To the storms on the sea he would say, ‘Be still.’ And to a loaf of bread he would say, ‘Become a thousand meals.’

And it was done immediately.”

~ John Piper (Bethlehem Baptist Church)
