I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:1-14)

Why would the hearts of the disciples be troubled? How would believing in God calm their hearts? If the disciples believed in God, why should they also, therefore, believe in Jesus?

Why are there “many rooms” in the Father’s house? Why can we believe the words of Jesus? How is Jesus preparing that place for us?

What is great about Jesus’ promise to come and get us to take us to the place where he is?

Why was Thomas so confused about Jesus’ statement?

Jesus: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” How is Jesus “the way?” How is Jesus “the truth?” How is Jesus “the life?”

Is Jesus really the only way to the Father? Are we to understand that all religions are not simply different paths to the same place? What if someone has never heard about Jesus? Does that make that person lost through no fault of his own? What responsibility does this give to the Christian?

Throughout John, Jesus emphasized his unity with the Father. Why?

How could Philip not understand this unity?

How could the one who believes in Jesus do greater works than the Lord had done? What is the context of these words? To whom is Jesus speaking?

Why does one need to ask in Jesus’ name? How would the Father be glorified in the Son by Jesus’ doing whatever is asked in his name?

Jesus promised to do whatever is asked in his name? Are there any caveats to that statement? I personally believe that since Jesus was speaking to the disciples in the context, Jesus’ promise to do whatever is asked in his name applies only to the Apostles.
