I Am the Way
John 13:36–38; John 14:1–7
This is our fifth week of our series called “I Am” where we have been exploring the 7 “I Am” statements of Jesus throughout the gospel of John. John’s gospel is focused on introducing the person and purpose
of Jesus which he does through these “I Am” statements. Each statement not only reveals the true identity of Jesus, but also serves as an invitation to respond to the type of relationship that Jesus the “I Am”
offers each of us. So far we have learned how Jesus is the bread of life, the light of the world, the good shepherd, and the gate for his sheep. This week we will learn how Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. As
Jesus prepares to fulfill his ultimate purpose he explains that the way to the Father is the way of the cross. This is not a path but a person; Jesus himself.
