Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Salvation is in a Person. This verse makes it clear that Jesus Himself is the way to heaven. He does not merely show the way, He is the way. Jesus is the truth. He is not just One who teaches the truth, He is the truth. Jesus is the Life. He is the source of life, both spiritual and eternal. Those who receive Him have eternal life because He is the life. If we want to have a relationship with God, we must go through the One who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, Jesus Christ.
