Jesus was and is God (Yahweh, I am).
Moses said to God, "Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, 'What is his
name?' Then what shall I tell them?" God said to Moses, "I am who I am.  This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has
sent me to you.' "
It is true that God refers to himself an “I am” many times in the bible. The Egyptians had many gods by many different names. Moses wanted to know
God’s name so the Hebrew people would know who sent him to them. God called himself “I Am”, a name describing his eternal power and unchangeable
character. Hebrews 13:8 says god is the same “yesterday and today and forever” because God’s nature is stable and trustworthy.
I’m sure you have heard God referred to as Yahweh. This is also accurate; Yahweh is derived from the Hebrew word for “I Am”.
