Jesus said, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life
Updated: Sep 7, 2020
Jesus shocked His disciples gathered around Him by the unexpected announcement that He would soon leave them. The time had come to finish the work Father sent Him to earth to do. His physical presence would leave the Earthly Kingdom; and return home to His Father’s house in heaven.
In their distress and grief, Jesus comforted them by explaining that He went to prepare a place there for them, also. And they would be there with Him for eternity.
Still unclear on who Jesus really was, Thomas tried to pin down His destination so they could find Jesus later.
Jesus said, I AM:
the Way – by believing and receiving Him by faith, He’s the only means accepted by the God the Father to eternal life
the Truth – as absolute Truth in person and character, Jesus revealed God the Father and divine thought
the Life - the author and giver of natural, spiritual and eternal life.
