Jesus' Way

What made Christ Jesus "the way, the truth, and the life"? John 14:6;

It was not any peculiar or personal power inherent in the man Jesus. Rather it was his understanding of God and, consequently, of the true nature of man and the universe. It was what he knew Life to be, and power, substance, and law to be, that gave Jesus divine authority, divine power, to heal humanity by destroying the illusions of sin, disease, and death.

"Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free," 8:32; the Master said. It is Truth itself that makes one free, not the person who is knowing the truth or any forcefulness or willful emphasis in the knowing. As Truth itself is the healer, one's understanding of Truth must be scientifically correct. To know the truth is to discern God's spiritual idea in contradistinction to the mortal error, or counterfeit. It is to be so clearly aware of the spiritual idea that the false, mortal belief disappears from thought even as a claim.
