THE FORK IN THE ROAD

This past week was our first weekly meeting of the 2018-2019 school year! For it, we launched a series of messages on Jesus’ final discourse. Jesus’ final discourse was the teaching he gave to his disciples the night before he was crucified found in John 14-17.

In case you missed it, here is an excerpt from Matt Kirby’s first talk on John 14:

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6).

Jesus does not say that he is A way or A truth or A life…but THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life. Jesus makes an exclusive claim that he is the one way to get to God. He said that if you want to know God and know the way to God, you must go through him. And this is where Jesus becomes a fork in the road…you can’t listen to this verse and stay neutral about Jesus.
