The Pharisees had had it with all of Jesus’s crazy talk.
So much so they said, “Are we not right in saying that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?”
Not that was a low blow.
But it didn’t keep Jesus from telling the truth.
He said to these Pharisees, “If anyone keeps my word, he will never see death.”
How can that be, they wondered? Abraham died. Are you saying you are greater than Abraham? Just who do you think you are Jesus?
To this he responded, “Before Abraham was, I AM”
The same name God used with Moses when he declared, “I am has sent me to you.”
Jesus is God and he declared it to these skeptics in the clearest of terms.
They picked up stones to stone him, but to those who believe him, they will never taste death.
