The 7 “I am” sayings of Jesus

The 7 “I am” sayings of Jesus in the Fourth Gospel

Right from the beginning, any reader of the Gospel of John will notice that it is different than the three Synoptic Gospels. Many of Jesus’ discourses in John are rich with mystery and riddles that hook readers to think more deeply about the primary Christological question: Who is Jesus Christ? Jesus answers that question and much more in a variety of ways, including the seven “I am” sayings.


In the next while, I plan on posting my humble attempts at exploring Jesus’ “I am” sayings in my sketch pad, using oil pastels. They shall also appear here as blog headers. The first in this series is: “I am the bread of life.” (John 6:35, 41, 48-51)

35, 41, 48-51

    This sounds like an interesting series.

    Would you allow some of us (me) to use your sketches at our blog? I may put them on a slide show and perhaps put music to them… not sure…

    I like the first one so far.

    God bless.

    • Hey, Dim

      This is Daniel Yang from Taiwan.
      I just made a Facebook page for my bible study group and I find the picture with the bread the best to be the cover for my page!
      Therefore, is it ok that I use the picture as the cover of my FB page??

    Yes, Daniel, you have my permission, I’d appreciate a link back and acknowledgement. Thanks, and blessings on your Bible study group.

    • Thanks for the reply.
      I really appreciate your quick reply. I believe that God truly will use these resources to further his kingdom in many parts of the world.
      Many thanks to you and wish one day could travel in Israel!

      God bless and peace,

      Daniel Yang(楊德恩)
