JESUS before Abraham

 John 8:58

King James Version

58 Jesus said unto them, 

Verily, verily, I say unto you, 

Before Abraham was, I am.

Before Abraham was, JESUS was.

This, in answer to the Jews' demand:

John 8:57

King James Version

57 Then said the Jews unto him, 

Thou art not yet fifty years old, 

and hast thou seen Abraham?

The LORD's answer so enraged the Jews they wanted to stone Him.

John 8:59

King James Version

59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: 

but Jesus hid himself, 

and went out of the temple, 

going through the midst of them, 

and so passed by.

But the Bible has proof of the divinity of JESUS.

John 1:1

King James Version

1 In the beginning was the Word, 

and the Word was with God, 

and the Word was God.

John 1:14

King James Version

14 And the Word was made flesh, 

and dwelt among us, 

(and we beheld his glory, 

the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) 

full of grace and truth.

Revelation 19:11-13

King James Version

11 And I saw heaven opened, 

and behold a white horse; 

and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, 

and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, 

and on his head were many crowns; 

and he had a name written, 

that no man knew, but he himself.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: 

and his name is called The Word of God.

Everything was created by JESUS, for JESUS.

Colossians 1:16-19

King James Version

16 For by him were all things created, 

that are in heaven, 

and that are in earth, 

visible and invisible, 

whether they be thrones, or dominions, 

or principalities, or powers: 

all things were created by him, and for him:

17 And he is before all things, 

and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, 

the church: 

who is the beginning, 

the firstborn from the dead; 

that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father 

that in him should all fulness dwell;

Scripture ends all debate, and confusion.

Because it's the nonnegotiable gospel.
