We’re in a teaching series looking at the “I am” sayings of Jesus. Today’s passage is one of the most controversial statements that Jesus made – that he is the Way, the Truth and the Life, and that nobody comes to the Father except by him. Is that something we can really take seriously in [ more… ]
