Thursday, Fifth Week of Easter: "it is my Father who glorifies me"

before Abraham came to be, I AM
--Jn 8:51-59

Only the divine identity of Jesus' person can justify so absolute a claim as "He who is not with me is against me"; and his saying that there was in him "something greater than Jonah,. . . greater than Solomon", something "greater than the Temple"; his reminder that David had called the Messiah his Lord, and his affirmations, "Before Abraham was, I AM", and even "I and the Father are one."
-- CCC 590
