Way Truth and Life what does it mean

I am the way and the truth and the life... is one of the seven time Jesus used "I Am". On the last night before His betrayal and death, Jesus was preparing His disciples for the days ahead. For over three years, these men had been following Jesus and learning from His teaching and example. They had placed their hopes in Him as the Messiah, the promised deliverer, yet they still didn't understand how He was going to accomplish that deliverance. After the Last Supper, Jesus began speaking about His departure, which led to questions from His disciples.

I am

In the Greek translation, "I am" is a very intense way of referring to oneself. It would be like saying, "I myself, and only I, am." Several other times in the new testament we find Jesus using these words.

The way

Jesus used this definite phrase to distinguish Himself as "the only way." A way is a path or route, however the disciples had expressed their confusion about this... the wondered where He was going and how they could follow. As He had told them from the start, Jesus was again telling them (and us) "follow me." There is no better way to heaven, no other way to the Father.

The truth

As always Jesus used this phrase to emphasize Himself as "the only truth."

The life

Jesus had just been telling His disciples about His vision death, and now He was claiming to be the source of all life. He gave the promise that "because I live, you also will live." The deliverance He was about to provide was not a political or social deliverance, but a true deliverance from a life of bondage to sin and death to a life of freedom in eternity.
