Memories Of A Previous Life

Of the billions of humans that have ever lived, or will ever live, Jesus Christ is the only human who could honestly (there are many people who lie about having such memories) and correctly (there are many who may honestly believe their own delusions of such non-existent "memories") say that He had memories of a time before He was born. Some religions even teach one form or another of so-called "reincarnation" (true Christianity is definitely not one of them) but what they claim, whether they realize it or not, is based on pagan myths and fables, not reality. Jesus Christ was the only one who could genuinely remember things (by means of The Spirit Of God that was upon Him, which also made possible the miracles that He did, see also The Healers) from the time before He was born (or even before the world existed, as plainly stated in the verses below) for a very special reason.

Jesus Christ plainly stated "before Abraham was, I am" - a statement that so enraged some of His fellow Jews, who should have easily recognized Him as their long awaited Messiah (He literally fulfilled every qualification in the Book - see Which Bible Did Jesus Use? and Aliyya and Haftara), but didn't, that they tried to stone Him to death for telling them the Truth:

A plain statement that Jesus had memories of the time not just before He was born, but before the world was born, even before "in the beginning" of time (time is little more than a measurement of physical change):
