I am the Life of life

Something trivial, perhaps:

Several years ago, I saw a documentary about the resistance of some Egyptians against moves to have their conventional bread fortified with iron. I'm no longer sure about the details of the program but I was struck by the Egyptians' comment that in their language, the word of bread is the same for life. Life is bread and bread is life.

If you juxtaposed this with Christ's "I am the Bread of Life", He might as well have been saying "I am the Life of life". This could be a good apologetic proof for the divinity of Christ.
