The WAY the TRUTH the LIFE

 

John 14:6

King James Version

6 Jesus saith unto him, 

I am the way, 

the truth, 

and the life: 

no man cometh unto the Father, 

but by me.


What does it really mean, when JESUS said that verse above?

Just like with all things seemingly simple, we tend to take it for granted.

But do we really understand what the LORD said?

Have we grasped its meaning yet?

For myself, I really want to understand.

And the only way to find out, is to take it the LORD's WORD, at a time.

Here's where the HOLY SPIRIT led me, in SCRIPTURE.


The WAY.

John 10:7-9

King James Version

7 Then said Jesus unto them again, 

Verily, verily, 

I say unto you

I am the door of the sheep.

8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: 

but the sheep did not hear them.

9 I am the door: 

by me if any man enter in, 

he shall be saved, 

and shall go in and out, 

and find pasture.


John 14:15

King James Version

15 If ye love me, 

keep my commandments.


John 14:21

King James Version

21 He that hath my commandments, 

and keepeth them, 

he it is that loveth me: 

and he that loveth me 

shall be loved of my Father, 

and I will love him, 

and will manifest myself to him.


Matthew 22:37-40

King James Version

37 Jesus said unto him, 

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart, 

and with all thy soul, 

and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, 

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments 

hang all the law and the prophets.


John 14:1-4

King James Version

14 Let not your heart be troubled

ye believe in God, 

believe also in me.

2 In my Father's house are many mansions: 

if it were not so, 

I would have told you. 

I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, 

I will come again, 

and receive you unto myself; 

that where I am,

 there ye may be also.

4 And whither I go ye know, 

and the way ye know.


John 14:23

King James Version

23 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

If a man love me, 

he will keep my words

and my Father will love him, 

and we will come unto him, 

and make our abode with him.


John 8:31

King James Version

31 Then said Jesus to those Jews 

which believed on him, 

If ye continue in my word, 

then are ye my disciples indeed;


John 14:28-29

King James Version

28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, 

I go away, 

and come again unto you. 

If ye loved me, 

ye would rejoice

because I said, 

I go unto the Father: 

for my Father is greater than I.

29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, 

that, 

when it is come to pass, 

ye might believe.


Luke 9:23

King James Version

23 And he said to them all, 

If any man will come after me, 

let him deny himself, 

and take up his cross daily, 

and follow me.


The TRUTH.

John 10:30

King James Version

30 I and my Father are one.


John 14:10

King James Version

10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, 

and the Father in me? 

the words that I speak unto you 

I speak not of myself: 

but the Father that dwelleth in me, 

he doeth the works.


John 14:11

King James Version

11 Believe me that I am in the Father, 

and the Father in me: 

or else believe me for the very works' sake.


John 14:12

King James Version

12 Verily, verily, 

I say unto you, 

He that believeth on me, 

the works that I do shall he do also; 

and greater works than these shall he do; 

because I go unto my Father.


John 5:36-37

King James Version

36 But I have greater witness than that of John: 

for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, 

the same works that I do, 

bear witness of me, 

that the Father hath sent me.

37 And the Father himself, 

which hath sent me, 

hath borne witness of me

Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, 

nor seen his shape.


John 8:42

King James Version

42 Jesus said unto them, 

If God were your Father, 

ye would love me: 

for I proceeded forth and came from God; 

neither came I of myself, 

but he sent me.


John 8:47

King James Version

47 He that is of God heareth God's words

ye therefore hear them not, 

because ye are not of God.


John 8:58

King James Version

58 Jesus said unto them, 

Verily, verily, 

I say unto you, 

Before Abraham was, 

I am.


John 14:13-14

King James Version

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, 

that will I do, 

that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, 

I will do it.


John 14:18

King James Version

18 I will not leave you comfortless: 

I will come to you.


John 14:16-17

King James Version

16 And I will pray the Father, 

and he shall give you another Comforter, 

that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth

whom the world cannot receive, 

because it seeth him not, 

neither knoweth him: 

but ye know him; 

for he dwelleth with you, 

and shall be in you.


John 14:26

King James Version

26 But the Comforter, 

which is the Holy Ghost, 

whom the Father will send in my name, 

he shall teach you all things, 

and bring all things to your remembrance, 

whatsoever I have said unto you.


John 15:26

King James Version

26 But when the Comforter is come, 

whom I will send unto you from the Father, 

even the Spirit of truth, 

which proceedeth from the Father, 

he shall testify of me:


John 14:27

King James Version

27 Peace I leave with you, 

my peace I give unto you: 

not as the world giveth, 

give I unto you. 

Let not your heart be troubled, 

neither let it be afraid.


John 8:12

King James Version

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, 

saying, 

I am the light of the world: 

he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, 

but shall have the light of life.


John 10:14

King James Version

14 I am the good shepherd, 

and know my sheep, 

and am known of mine.


John 14:30-31

King James Version

30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: 

for the prince of this world cometh, 

and hath nothing in me.

31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; 

and as the Father gave me commandment, 

even so I do

Arise, 

let us go hence.


John 5:19-20

King James Version

19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, 

Verily, verily, 

I say unto you, 

The Son can do nothing of himself, 

but what he seeth the Father do: 

for what things soever he doeth, 

these also doeth the Son likewise.

20 For the Father loveth the Son, 

and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: 

and he will shew him greater works than these, 

that ye may marvel.


John 5:30

King James Version

30 I can of mine own self do nothing: 

as I hear, 

I judge: 

and my judgment is just; 

because I seek not mine own will, 

but the will of the Father 

which hath sent me.


John 8:28-29

King James Version

28 Then said Jesus unto them, 

When ye have lifted up the Son of man, 

then shall ye know that I am he, 

and that I do nothing of myself; 

but as my Father hath taught me, 

I speak these things.

29 And he that sent me is with me: 

the Father hath not left me alone; 

for I do always those things that please him.


John 14:19-20

King James Version

19 Yet a little while, 

and the world seeth me no more; 

but ye see me: 

because I live, 

ye shall live also.

20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, 

and ye in me, 

and I in you.


The LIFE.

John 11:25

King James Version

25 Jesus said unto her, 

I am the resurrection, 

and the life: 

he that believeth in me, 

though he were dead, 

yet shall he live:


John 11:26

King James Version

26 And whosoever liveth 

and believeth in me 

shall never die. 

Believest thou this?


John 11:23

King James Version

23 Jesus saith unto her, 

Thy brother shall rise again.


John 11:32-44

King James Version

32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, 

and saw him, 

she fell down at his feet, 

saying unto him, 

Lord, if thou hadst been here, 

my brother had not died.

33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping,

and the Jews also weeping which came with her, 

he groaned in the spirit, 

and was troubled.

34 And said, 

Where have ye laid him

They said unto him, 

Lord, come and see.

35 Jesus wept.

36 Then said the Jews, 

Behold how he loved him!

37 And some of them said, 

Could not this man, 

which opened the eyes of the blind, 

have caused that even this man should not have died?

38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave

It was a cave, 

and a stone lay upon it.

39 Jesus said, 

Take ye away the stone

Martha, 

the sister of him that was dead, 

saith unto him, 

Lord, by this time he stinketh: 

for he hath been dead four days.

40 Jesus saith unto her, 

Said I not unto thee, 

that, if thou wouldest believe, 

thou shouldest see the glory of God?

41 Then they took away the stone from the place 

where the dead was laid. 

And Jesus lifted up his eyes, 

and said, 

Father, 

I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: 

but because of the people which stand by I said it, 

that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

43 And when he thus had spoken, 

he cried with a loud voice, 

Lazarus, 

come forth.

44 And he that was dead came forth

bound hand and foot with graveclothes: 

and his face was bound about with a napkin. 

Jesus saith unto them, 

Loose him, 

and let him go.


John 5:21-29

King James Version

21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, 

and quickeneth them; 

even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

22 For the Father judgeth no man, 

but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

23 That all men should honour the Son, 

even as they honour the Father. 

He that honoureth not the Son 

honoureth not the Father 

which hath sent him.

24 Verily, verily, 

I say unto you, 

He that heareth my word, 

and believeth on him that sent me, 

hath everlasting life, 

and shall not come into condemnation; 

but is passed from death unto life.

25 Verily, verily, 

I say unto you, 

The hour is coming, 

and now is, 

when the dead shall hear the voice 

of the Son of God: 

and they that hear shall live.

26 For as the Father hath life in himself; 

so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, 

because he is the Son of man.

28 Marvel not at this: 

for the hour is coming, 

in the which all that are in the graves 

shall hear his voice,

29 And shall come forth; 

they that have done good, 

unto the resurrection of life

and they that have done evil, 

unto the resurrection of damnation.


John 10:10-11

King James Version

10 The thief cometh not, 

but for to steal, 

and to kill,

 and to destroy: 

I am come that they might have life, 

and that they might have it more abundantly.

11 I am the good shepherd: 

the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.


John 10:15-18

King James Version

15 As the Father knoweth me, 

even so know I the Father: 

and I lay down my life for the sheep.

16 And other sheep I have, 

which are not of this fold: 

them also I must bring, 

and they shall hear my voice; 

and there shall be one fold, 

and one shepherd.

17 Therefore doth my Father love me, 

because I lay down my life, 

that I might take it again.

18 No man taketh it from me, 

but I lay it down of myself. 

I have power to lay it down, 

and I have power to take it again. 

This commandment have I received of my Father.


John 10:27-29

King James Version

27 My sheep hear my voice, 

and I know them, 

and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; 

and they shall never perish

neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

29 My Father, 

which gave them me, 

is greater than all; 

and no man 

is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.


John 8:23-24

King James Version

23 And he said unto them, 

Ye are from beneath; 

I am from above: 

ye are of this world; 

I am not of this world.

24 I said therefore unto you, 

that ye shall die in your sins: 

for if ye believe not that I am he, 

ye shall die in your sins.


John 8:51

King James Version

51 Verily, verily, 

I say unto you, 

If a man keep my saying, 

he shall never see death.


John 3:16

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him 

should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.


John 5:39-40

King James Version

39 Search the scriptures; 

for in them ye think ye have eternal life: 

and they are they which testify of me.

40 And ye will not come to me, 

that ye might have life.
