I AM The Bread Of Life
In NIV Study Notes; 6:35 I am. The first of seven (the number of completeness and perfection) self-descriptions of Jesus introduced by “I am” (see 8:12; [9:5;] 10:7, 9; 10:11, 14; 11:25; 14:6; 15:1, 5; see also chart). In the Greek the words are solemnly emphatic and echo Ex 3:14 (see notes on Ex 3:12–15) and the seven “I am he” statements in Isaiah (41:4; 43:10, 13, 25; 46:4; 48:12; 51:12).

In fact, the water I will give him will become a well of water springing up within him for eternal life.” Christ he gives life to dead sinners.

I AM The Light Of The World
John 8:12 “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.”“I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.”
John Calvin wrote It is a beautiful commendation of Christ, when he is called the light of the world; for, since we are all blind by nature, a remedy is offered, by which we may be freed and rescued from darkness and made partakers of the true light.
Believer Bible Commentary Naturally speaking, the world is in the darkness of sin, ignorance, and aimlessness.”
Furthermore he, “The light of the world is Jesus. Apart from Him, there is no deliverance from the blackness of sin. Apart from Him, there is no guidance along the way of life, no knowledge as to the real meaning of life and the issues of eternity. Jesus promised that anyone following Him would not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.
To follow Jesus means to come to Him in repentance, to trust Him as Lord and Savior, and then to commit one’s whole life to Him. Those who do this have guidance in life and clear and bright hope beyond the grave.
John Calvin wrote, “For Christ declares that he is the light of the whole world; for by this universal statement he intended to remove the distinction, not only between Jews and Gentiles, but between the learned and ignorant, between persons of distinction and the common people.”
We take a candle into a room to dispel the darkness. Likewise, the Light of Jesus Christ has to be taken into the darkness of sin that engulfs the hearts and lives of those who are not following Him. That’s the condition behind having this Light—that we follow Him. If we do not follow Him, we will not have this light, this truth, this eternal life.
