Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.
The way of a holy conversation; the truth of a heavenly doctrine; the life of a bliss everlasting (Leo). The way to beginners, the truth to the progressing (chap. John 8:32), the life to the perfect (Ferus). I am the Way, leading to the truth; I am the Truth, promising life; I am the Life, which I give (St. ). I am the Way and the Life; the way on earth, the life in heaven: I am He, to whom you go; I am He, by whom you go (St. Augustine). The way, in which we walk by charity; the truth, to which we cling by faith; the life, to which we aspire by hope. The life in His example, the truth in His promise, the life in His reward (St. Bernard). Truth lies between way and life, as if the way to life were through truth (Leigh). The true way to eternal life (Dr. Whichcote). Without the Way there is no going; without the Truth there is no knowing; without the Life there is no living. I am the Way which thou oughtest to follow; the Truth which thou oughtest to trust; the Life which thou oughtest to hope for. I am the inviolable Way, the infallible Truth, the Godless Life. If thou remain in My way thou shalt know the truth, and the truth shall make thee free and thou shalt lay hold on eternal life.
( Thomas a Kempis.)
