It might also be interesting to look at Matthew 14:27
[hO IHSOUS] AUTOIS LEGWN, THARSEITE, EGW EIMI MH PHOBEISTHE.
and Mark 6:50
KAI LEGEI AUTOIS, THARSEITE, EGW EIMI MH PHOBEISTHE.
Also Acts 9:5 EGW EIMI IHSOUS hON SU DIWKEIS
Acts 22:8 EGW EIMI IHSOUS hO NAZWRAIOS hON SU DIWKEIS.
Acts 26:15 EGW EIMI IHSOUS hON SU DIWKEIS.
Luke 24:39 hOTI EGW EIMI AUTOS
Acts 18:10 DI hOTI EGW EIMI META SOU
Also Revelation 22:16 EGW EIMI hH hRIZA KAI TO GENOS DAVID, hO ASPHR
hO LAMPROS hO PRWINOS.
Revelation 1:17 EGW EIMI hO PRWTOS KAI hO ESXATOS
REVELATION 2:23 Hoti egw eimi Ho eraunwn vephrous kai kardias
And especially Revelation 21:6
EGW EIMI TO ALPHA KAI TO W, hH ARXH KAI TELOS.
Although not directly in this line of thought, Matthew 24:5 is
interesting, EGO EIMI hO XRISTOS.
Also Luke 22:70 uMEIS LEGETE hOTI EGW EIMI.
Additionally, Peter uses this phrase to refer to himself in Acts 10:21
IDOU EGW EIMI ON ZHTEITE
Does it count when EGW and EIMI are separated, as in Matthew 28:20,
EGW METH' hUMWN EIMI etc. ?
