Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on, you know him, and have seen him.” Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you such a long time, and do you not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father. How do you say, ‘Show us the Father?’ (John 14:5-9 WEB)
Eternal life is to have relationship with God through his son Jesus Christ. He is the way that that relationship becomes possible because he is the truth. In order to appreciate this truth we have to read to Bible for ourselves and discover the real living Jesus. Meet Jesus yourself - who he was, is, and will be - by reading the bible. That encounter could transform your life!
As a recent Jewish author wrote: "I couldn't help writing on Jesus. Since I first met Him, He has held my mind and heart.... I floundered a bit, at first; I was seeking that something for which so many of us search - that surety, that faith, that spiritual content in my living which would bring me peace and through which I might bring some peace to others. I found it in the Nazarene.... Everything He ever said or did has value for us today, and that is something you can say of no other man, alive or dead.... He became the Light of the world."
You can meet Jesus too
- by reading the Bible for yourself!
