And I'd be pleased if our resident scholars would take a took at it, especially the idea that the word 'erchetai' does not apply to all people everywhere, but rather, to the persons Jesus was speaking to, as well as the concept of the cosmic "I".
Oh I can just hear to whistle of the Gnosticland Express start and the screeching of the wheels as they spin and get nowhere!
I know this thread is very old, but I hope to revive it somewhat. I was looking up this scripture yesterday and found this website with this quote.
I agree that it is the I AM, and not Christ, but then the rest of it says, No one comes to the Father except through me
, which makes it seem like you have to go through him. Why doesn't it read, except through I AM?
I hope that made sense. Anyone have any ideas?
