This thesis studies 'I am' on the lips of the Johannine Jesus. Although previous studies of this phrase have discovered many formal parallels, insufficient attention has been devoted to the function of the words in John. Thus there is a danger of imposing on the Gospel ideas that are foreign to it. The "I am" sayings should first be studied in the Gospel context to determine their function there. It is then possible to delimit any background material in terms of its relation to John's use of the phrase.
