Read John 14:1-7
John 14:1–7 ESV
1 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.” 5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”
A Great Promise
A great proposition
Who said it
This is not really a verse that is taken out of context as much
But is often avoided
Why???
Because it is absolute
Read John 14:6
John 14:6 ESV
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
This is a declarative statement by Jesus
I AM The
not I am a
He makes this statement as an absolute
This is an exclusive statement
But there is a great promise for those who understand this fact
Yes it is definite and exclusive but here is what is promised
