JOHN 14:1-7

Jesus, the Way to the Father
14 “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. 2 There is more than enough room in my Father’s home.[a] If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?[b] 3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.”

5 “No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. 7 If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is.[c] From now on, you do know him and have seen him!”


We have been studying Jesus’ teaching that He is the gateway to God. This passage affirms that Jesus is the way. The Truth is not a concept, but a Person.


Q: According to Jesus, how do we know and see God the Father?
Q: Have you personally experienced Jesus as the way, the truth and the life?
Q: How can you share this good news with those around you?
