Pastor's Note...

“The statement of Jesus that he is the Way came as an answer to the question of Thomas “How can we know the way?” (v.5). This simply meant, “How can we come to God?” Thomas asked ultimate question that has perplexed and confused men ever since Adam sinned. Adam knew the Way for he had had spiritual communion with God. He knew the Truth, having knowledge of God. He had life. When he sinned he lost the way. Hiding himself in a garden was proof of this. By making aprons from fig leaves he showed he had lost perception of truth. Being cast from God’s presence was death as God had warned.
 
Now Budda, the master of the Buddhists, showed his followers a way. Muhammed claimed unswerving allegiance to his religion of Islam as the way. But Jesus claimed that the way to God is not through a discovery (e.g., Buddha), his example (viz. Muhammed), or his teachings (all the rest), but by HIM, his very person. Verse 7 tells us why: “If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. Henceforth you know him and have seen him.” It is this very manifestation of the Father in himself that makes Jesus the only way to God. And it is for this reason that he says “I AM the way.” As Jesus himself said: “No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him.” (Matthew 11:27). It is this reality that established Jesus as the way. It is God, in his fullness, who is revealed in him and so he declares his deity “I AM the way.” Any concept of God or philosophy or theology about him that does not find its completeness in Jesus Christ is false.”   -   Answering Islam
