    In the final chapter of John's Gospel, Jesus appears to the disciples on the shore of Lake Galilee, where he shares a breakfast of bread and fish. This chapter is also packed with beautify symbolism and imagery. This is the final resurrection appearance in the Gospel of John. Peter decides to go fishing and 6 other disciples go with him. The “I Am’s” are statements that Jesus made in the gospel of John. They are called the “I Am’s” because each one of them starts with the same 2 words, “I am.” Then, Jesus follows the words “I am” with a phrase to describe Himself to those who are listening.

    John presents Jesus Christ as God's final self-revelation, God's final word. Here God says to us: this is who I am; look at me; believe in me, here in human flesh, here in this man, my eternal Son, Jesus Christ. There is no other way. There is no other God.

    John's Gospel includes a number of passages that include two Greek words together, egō eimi, "I am."" When these words are used emphatically, "I am" is a rather unveiled reference to the name by which God revealed himself to Moses as Yahweh -- "I AM THAT I AM" (Exodus ). In saying "I am" in this way, Jesus is declaring his divinity and oneness with the Father.   Here I am following Andreas J. Köstenberger, A Theology of John’s Gospel and his Letters (Grand Rapids, Mich.: Zondervan, ), although Köstenberger himself follows B. F. Wescott. Wescott observed John’s Gospel was written after the success of the (Pauline) Gentile Mission as well as after the destruction of Jerusalem.
