In John 8, Jesus tells a big crowd that He is the light of the world and that anyone who follows Him will always have His light to guide them.
I AM the Door of the Sheep
Jesus is the door that protects His sheep. The only people that come in are the ones He lets in. But there are many other voices in the world. They aim to lure you away from the gate they can’t get in.
I AM the Good Shepherd
The shepherd also lies attentive among his sheep to defend against any threats predators may pose in the night. Jesus says to His sheep, “I am the Good Shepherd.”
I AM the Resurrection and the Life
Jesus does not say that he merely has the power to resurrect. But Jesus is claiming to be the source of resurrection and all life.
