Food for thought: Jesus said this about himself: “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning Star, the Son of Man, the Bread of Life, the Light of the world, I AM, the Good Shepherd, the Door, the Resurrection and the Life, the True Vine, the Truth, the Bridegroom, the Author.
Fun facts: God the Father spoke to Jesus audibly and publicly 3x in his ministry: 1) at his baptism, 2) at the Transfiguration, 3) before the crucifixion.
