My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 What my Father has given me is greater than all else, and no one can snatch it out of the Father’s hand.<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-NRSV-26500c" data-link="[c]”>[c] 30 The Father and I are one.”

—-The Gospel of John
There would be no greater act of blasphemy in Judaism than to claim that you are Yahweh himself in the flesh; that YOU are God. Yet we are asked to believe that Jesus made this earth-shattering statement…and only one of the four authors of the Gospels bothered to record it.
I don’t think that Jesus ever made this statement. I think the author of John made it up.
