THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE
Three words quite familiar to  Christians, regardless of religious organization or sect they belong to. For, in listening to these words, they instantly remind Christians of the known sentences of Jesus, recorded in the Gospel of John:

“I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (Jo14:6)

And then they keep in their hearts the most immediate interpretation of those words, which is that only the followers of Christianity will be able to reach Heaven.
And, naturally, that the members of their own Christian institution are the ones who will reach it more safely.
Such is a thought not much different from the one cherished by the Pharisees at the time of Jesus…

However, these meaningful words of the Son of God are much deeper than they seem at first sight…….”
