IAmThatIAmExodus 35:30: “And thou shalt set upon the table shewbread before me always”

In the Hebrew the shewbread means “to show, to tell forth, to declare.” The shewbread was a prophetic type of God the Father, the Great I AM, revealing Himself and showing forth His great I AM ability to provide abundant life and sustenance through the broken life-giving bread of His son, Jesus Christ.

The great “I AM THAT I AM” is the name God tells Moses to tell the people of Israel when they ask His name (Exodus 3:13).

Many commentators explain that “I AM THAT I AM” means that . . .

1) He is self-existent. He has His being in Himself and has no dependence on any other. Being self-existent, He cannot but be self-sufficient, and therefore all self-sufficient and the inexhaustible fountain of being and bliss.
2) He is eternal and unchangeable.

The great I AM showed forth His prophetical personage as the eternal sustainer of His priests and people, i.e. the twelve loaves represent the twelve tribes. This bread on the golden table also showed forth the Messiah who would confess:

“I AM the bread which came down from heaven” (John 6:41).

“I AM the bread of life" (John 6:48).

“I AM the living bread” (John 6:51).

One cannot help but notice the three I AMs in these Scriptures.

To be continued.

Be encouraged.
