INTRODUCTION: When Prophet Isaiah prophesied concerning a highway in Isaiah 35:4-8
he was referring to the coming Messiah through whom alone they and all others can
have access to God by obeying His instructions, imitating His example, and depending on
His merits. He is the leader in the road, the guide to the wanderers, the teacher of the
ignorant, and the example to all.
Titus 1:2 connotes that God cannot lie. It is not that God chooses not to lie, but that He
cannot; because it goes against his nature. To claim that God is truth means that God’s
essence is sheer truth and possesses no falsehood. John 14:6 proves that Jesus holds
this attribute, therefore, He is Truth personified. (Rev 3:7)
1. How do you understand Jesus Christ to be The way and the Truth? Matt 1:21; Acts
2. According to Peter’s confession in John 6:68, how can you present Jesus Christ as
the only way and Truth to salvation? John 3;17;Jn 10:11-13; 17-18; Tit 2:13-14; 1Jn 2:1.
3. How can you prove the superiority of Jesus Christ above all who may profess to be
the way to salvation? Deut 4:4; John 1:17; 1Tim 2:5-6; Acts 5:34-39.
4. From your experience, explain how some preachers either with the Bible or otherwise
are claiming to be the way to salvation in our generation. How can Christians
overcome of these false saviours? Luke 21:8; Eph 5:5-8
CONCLUSION: The Old Testament attests to God showing His will and commands
through His prophets and priests. However, in the New Testament, He has revealed
Himself finally and Supremely in Jesus Christ as the Only True way by which we can
enter into His kingdom.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Jesus Christ: The only key to eternal life.
