John 8:58 New English Translation (NET Bible)

58 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the solemn truth,[a] before Abraham came into existence,[b] I am!”[c]

Footnotes:

  1. John 8:58 tn Grk “Truly, truly, I say to you.”
  2. John 8:58 tn Grk “before Abraham was.”
  3. John 8:58 sn I am! is an explicit claim to deity. Although each occurrence of the phrase “I am” in the Fourth Gospel needs to be examined individually in context to see if an association with Exod 3:14 is present, it seems clear that this is the case here (as the response of the Jewish authorities in the following verse shows).
