Consider: He also said: (Revelation1:18) “I am he who lives, and was dead, and beloved I am alive forever more.” Amen!
What questions do you think John was asking Jesus? What language do you think Jesus was speaking, and do you think he made John feel comfortable?
The answer that I am looking for is: What did Jesus mean in his message first and last, and regarding life, and death to John, and how, if any, is this pass onto us and for what reasons?
This is the expression of the transition of our perception. We come here in this world and worship the flesh and believe this is life. It is just the first step. Afterward when one progresses spiritually, a metaphorical death must happen to the ego and transition to the spirit where a new life is recognized. Jesus often used his name as a signpost for the path of this transition.
