Jesus The Way, The Truth, & The Life
In JOHN 14:1-6 Jesus tells the disciples he is returning to heaven, but they do not need to worry because they will be with him in heaven too. In the meantime he will ask God the Father to send the Holy Spirit to be with them, until they go where he is going.
As usual the disciples fail to understand what Jesus is saying and ask him to explain.
Thomas asks how they're going to get where he is going because, quite frankly, they just don't get it! In reply Jesus says (verse 6):
"I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to (God) the Father except through me."
In JOHN 6:44 Jesus again highlights the fact that no one can come to God except through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit.
And in ACTS 4:11-12 Peter says: "Jesus is a stumbling-block - the stone you builders rejected - which has become the cornerstone of faith. Salvation is found only in him. There is no other name apart from his on which people can call to be saved."
