People's Bible Notes for John 14:6


Joh 14:6 I am the way, and the truth, and the life. This is said in reply to Thomas. Without him there would be no Way revealed; no divine and saving truth, no immortal life. No man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Not only can no one enter the Father's house without him, but no man can come to the Father on earth so as to enjoy his favor. "There is no other name given under heaven among men whereby we must be saved" (Ac 4:12).

Discussion for John 14:6

  • I am recovering from my first cancer surgery. As I was to the second decade of the Sorrowful Mysteries" of the rosary, I had to look up this passage. It sent me into significant prayerful thought and bible study. My husband attends Christian church with me now. Catholics need to spend much more time teaching John 14:6. Resubmitted to edit last two words - thank you

  • Thomas Wani for verse 6
    the Gospel according to John presents Jesus as the eternal word of God, who become a human being and lived among us Jesus answered him Iam the way, the truth and the life no one goes to the father except by me
  • John 14:6 is one of the most important verses in the Bible. There is NO OTHER WAY to life. In Yeshuah Jesus is Salvation. His name means "Jehovah is Salvation ". Jesus is Jehovah God!!
  • We sing this verse in church a lot. The girls sing one verse and the boys another. Try it. It 's a great song!
  • Jesus is the way and even the way to God the father. He is the way to solve any problem we might encounter. Our sinful lives do not let God have an affair with us directly. We are saved by grace and for the sake of Christ. That is why we must end our prayers with the name of Jesus Christ. He the truth. The truth is nothing but word of God. Jesus is the truth because he had revealed every gospel which seemed hidden to us. He is life as John 10:10 has proved this. May God help us in Jesus ' name.
