An Echo From Antiquity

Now, it seems that of all the names given to God the more proper is that of I AM, as when conversing with Moses on the mountain He says, "Say to the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me." For like some limitless and boundless sea of essence. He contains all being within Himself.
-St. John of Damascus, On The Exact Exposition of the Orthodox Faith, Book 1, Chapter 9
