That's who I am.

[Jesus’] self-awareness is startling. No other human teacher has made anything like the claims he makes. There are plenty who have said, ‘I’m the divine consciousness.’ But they think of the divinity as being in all of us, in the trees and the rocks and the human spirit. Jesus, however, understands that there is a God who is uncreated, beginningless, infinitely transcendent, who made this world, who keeps everything in the universe going, so that all the molecules, all the stars, all the solar systems are being held up by the power of this God. And Jesus says, That’s who I am.

—Timothy Keller, The King’s Cross, pp. 43-44
