He is the Way the Truth & the Life
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. - John 14:6
At the Last Supper (the night before Jesus' death) He was preparing the disciples for what was to come. For three years these men had been following and put their hope and trust in Him. Let's break this verse down a bit.
1. I Am - In the Greek language, "I Am" is a very strong way of referring to oneself. Here is if referring to Him begin the ONLY one that can fulfill this.
2. The Way - A way is a path or route. When Jesus is talking with the disciples they are confused by where exactly He is going and why they can't follow Him there. Jesus is again telling them "follow me," but in a different way than before. Jesus is the way to God.
3. The Truth - Jesus is again saying He is the ONLY truth. Here is reflects who God is and the truth that encompasses the whole gospel.
4. The Life - Jesus came to give His life so we could have life eternally with Him in Heaven. He is the life that we get to have forever.
Jesus is the only path to heaven, the only true measure of righteousness, and the source of both physical and spiritual life.
