John 14:1-6 Comfort and Direction 

I love Jesus’ logic: “Believe God? Believe Me.” He does the same with His news about heaven. 

Lots of rooms.

Would I lie to you?

I’m preparing a place.

I’ll be back. 

You know the way. 

 The disciples may have known Him as God’s Son on an introductory level, but the depth of relationship was still veiled to them. They missed the last part. Thomas asked first, “What way?”

Jesus answered in a much larger manner than the question was intended. We call it a sound bite (striking remark), a catch phrase. 

[6] Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

 The rest of the chapter is on HOW this verse plays out. More tomorrow!
