Jesus the First and the Last, the Alpha and Omega

  Where else does Jesus say He is God in the Bible? 

  This is what YHWH God says in the Jewish Bible, the Old Testament Book of Isaiah:

  "Who has performed and done this, calling the generations from the beginning? I, Yahweh, am the first, and with the last — I AM.” Isaiah 41:4

  "This is what the Lord, the King of Israel and its Redeemer, the Lord of Hosts, says: I am the first and I am the last. There is no God but Me." Isaiah 44:6

  “Listen to Me, Jacob, and Israel, the one called by Me: I AM; I am the first, I am also the last." Isaiah 48:12

  And this is what God says in the Book of Revelation:

  “... It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give water as a gift to the thirsty from the spring of life. The victor will inherit these things, and I will be his God, and he will be My son." Revelation 21:6-7 

  In the following chapter, Jesus said,

  "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End." Revelation 22:13

  Previously, Jesus had said, 

  “I assure you: Before Abraham was, I AM.” John 8:58

  “Don’t be afraid! I am the First and the Last, and the Living One. I was dead, but look—I am alive forever and ever, and I hold the keys of death and Hades." Revelation 1:17-18

  Now let's try to make this as easy as possible for Muslims to comprehend: 

  God says:

  "I, Yahweh, I Am, I am the first and I am the last. There is no God but Me. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End."

  And Jesus says:

  "I AM. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."

  Earlier, Jesus had also said, "The Father and I are one." John 10:30

  Do you get it yet? 
Jesus IS God!
