  • Jesus the great I AM means He is who He is, who was and who is to come, the Almighty. (Revelation 1:8). We as in humanity are gods created in God's image. In the simplest words, He is and we are.
  • [ #1 ] There is a difference - a very important difference - between "I am God" and "I am a god". [ #2 ] Psalm 82 was authored by Asaph, not by Jesus. In that Psalm, Asaph is describing God being "in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment". In that Psalm, Asaph describes God speaking to other (supposed) deities, and (naturally) God addresses these other so-called deities as "gods". (Nearly all of the Bible authors do the same. That is: they use the words "god" or "gods" to describe false deities.) The fact that so many of the Bible's authors use those words to describe false deities does not mean that those deities are in fact actual beings, or real beings actually possessing the same attributes as God. [ #3 ] Jesus did in fact quote that psalm. His interpretation does not identify YOU as "a god", and certainly not as "god", but - rather - his interpretation identifies those "to whom the word of God came" as "gods", and himself as "son of God".
