Following the Way-shower

While talking with his disciples a short time before his ascension and endeavoring to make them understand that it was necessary for him to leave them, so that "the Spirit of truth," or the Comforter, might come to them, Christ Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

Let us see what Jesus meant by this saying. Since among Christian people he is acknowledged as the divine Exemplar, it should be their desire to understand his sayings; for to be his true followers it is necessary to know how he accomplished his mighty works. Both his words and his deeds must be understood. Born of the Virgin Mary, to human sense he partly partook of her material condition, but his spiritual origin enabled him to discern the facts of true being better than any other; and because of his human and divine nature, he became the mediator between God and men. In this way he was our Way-shower.
