I Am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life

John 14

1 "Let a not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 "In My Father's house are many 1 mansions; if it were not so, 2 I would have told you. b I go to prepare a place for you. 3 "And if I go and prepare a place for you, c I will come again and receive you to Myself; that d where I am, there you may be also. 4 "And where I go you know, and the way you know." 5 e Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?" 6 Jesus said to him, "I am f the way, g the truth, and h the life. i No one comes to the Father j except through Me. 7 k "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him."

8 Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us." 9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? l He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, 'Show us the Father'? 10 "Do you not believe that m I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you n I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. 11 "Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, o or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.

12 p "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 q "And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be r glorified in the Son. 14 "If you 3 ask anything in My name, I will do it.
