Jesus Is the Only Way to Truth and Life
Case 8: Jesus Christ
Who is Jesus Christ?
Jesus Christ is the only Son of God and the only Savior of sinners. To know Him by grace through faith is to know God the Father. John 14:6 – Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."
This Truth Makes
John 14:6 is Jesus’ response to Thomas, who wondered how he and the other disciples might go where Jesus was going (Jesus was going to heaven, to sit at the Father’s right hand). But instead of Jesus giving directions on a map, He replied that He Himself was the Way! Jesus is still the only Way to Heaven.
1 John 5:20 – And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
“Without the Way, there is no going. Without the Truth, there is no knowing. Without the Life, there is no living.”
Jesus Christ is the only Way to God – not just “one good way among many good ways.” Jesus Christ not only shows the Way to God, He is the Way! The Way to God is not by keeping the Ten Commandments, by going to church, doing good deeds, or giving money. The Way to God is through Christ alone.
