I Am What I Am is the common English translation of the response God used in the Hebrew Bible when Moses asked for his name (Exodus 3:14). The phrase is often found in other world religious literature, used to describe the Supreme Being, generally referring back to its use in Exodus.
It’s curious because the new movie Exodus: Gods and Kings is currently premiering on British television. The visually stunning biblical epic sees Moses rise up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses. It includes the I Am phrase.
The timing is curious because The Earth Emperor’s Eye introduces the thoughts of many characters through the symbolic term ‘I Am’. Are the Whittenbury Watch examples the work of a Surpreme Being?
