John 8:58 ” ‘I tell you the truth,’ Jesus answered, ‘before Abraham was born, I am!’ “

No wonder the Jews tried to stone Jesus for blasphemy after He made this incredible statement. It clearly referenced Jesus to being eternally preexistent, or in other words, “I have always been!” But the crowd was incapable of comprehending that this man Jesus standing before them could have possibly been there at the beginning of time. But in Revelation 1:8 we read, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, says the Lord God, Who is, and Who was, and Who is to come, the Almighty.” By using the first & last letter of the Greek alphabet here, John illustrates that the Lord God is both Creator (Alpha) & the One Who will usher in the new heaven & new earth. (Omega) So when Jesus declared this, He was simply stating that He is the Lord of all…past, present, & future.
