I AM the Way, the Truth, the Life

To the Jews in Jesus’ day, these words were as earth shattering then as they are today! The temple worship process made it extremely difficult for the ordinary lay person to have a life changing encounter with the living God.

It was invitation for all people to enter into that relationship, not a condition for determining who’s in and who’s out.
