Fifth Sunday of Easter

Jesus Is the Way, the Truth, and the Life

John 14: 1 - 14

Only John records this long discussion between Jesus and his disciples, placing it at the last meal they shared before Jesus' death.

Philip, called by Jesus from Bethsaida, was the simplest of evangelists. When he spoke to others about Jesus, all he said was, "Come and see."

Thomas seemed to ask more questions than the other disciples, but without his questions, we would have missed out on some wonderful answers.

1. What was Jesus' reason for leaving the disciples?

[Jesus was going ahead of the disciples to prepare a place for them.]

2. When Thomas asks Jesus to show him the way, what does Jesus answer?

[Jesus answers, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life."]

3. When Philip asks Jesus to show him the Father, what does Jesus say?

[Jesus answers, "If you have seen me, you have seen the Father.]
