12. "I Am the Bread of Life"

Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand
 
 
A miracle is "a beneficial event brought about through divine power that mortals do not understand and of themselves cannot duplicate." When Jesus was on earth he used his power and compassion to bless others through miracles. Some of these miracles included Jesus miraculously feeding more than 5,000 people and Jesus walking on the Sea. His miracles were another witness of his calling as the Son of God.
 
Jesus Declares Himself the Son of God
 
 
In John 6:35, Jesus declares, "I am the bread of life." The Greek words in this verse for the phrase "I AM" are ego eimi. By identifying himself with these Greek words, Jesus clearly states his divine identity as the Lord God of Israel. This chart lists the passages throughout the New Testament that also contain the words ego eimi.
