Jesus deliberately does not use a formula like “I am God” presumably because it would be very misleading. His knowledge of life within Elohim does not really permit Him to say something like that. He is the Son of the Father; the One sent from the Father. It would sound completely wrong for Him to say of Himself individually that He was God. He is the One who always, eternally, at all times carries out the will of the Most High. Whenever Jesus speaks about His place within the Living God He speaks simply of His relationship with the Father. A Muslim worships a god who can make statements like “I am god” because allah is simply an individual who claims deity. This is not like the Living God. The Three Persons are together the One God.
