“Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life,” John 14:1-14



1[Jesus said:] “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God;
believe also in me. 2In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were
not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3And
if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to
myself, that where I am you may be also. 4And you know the way to
where I am going.” 5Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where
you are going. How can we know the way?” 6Jesus said to him, “I am
the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through
me. 7If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From
now on you do know him and have seen him.”



     
8Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is
enough for us.” 9Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long,
and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.
How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10Do you not believe that I
am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not
speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. 11Believe
me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else believe on account
of the works themselves.



     
12“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will
also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I
am going to the Father. 13Whatever you ask in my name, this I will
do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If you ask me
anything in my name, I will do it.
