In one of Jesus’ most well-known statements, we explore not just the idea that Jesus is the only way to salvation, but who he is as the Way, Truth, and Life.
In this “I Am” saying, Jesus is not only telling us that there is resurrection from death, but that He is the source of such life. That’s amazing, and, to be honest, difficult to comprehend. So, what exactly does Jesus mean, and why is Jesus’ resurrection so important?
Continuing in John 10, Jesus goes on in his dialogue with the Pharisees and says that He is the Good Shepherd.
