John 14:6 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1 ) "Jesus saith unto him," (legei auto lesous) "Jesus said personally to him," to dispel doubt or any clouded uncertainty concerning the way to the Father's house.
2) "I am the way, the truth, and the life:” (ego eimi he hodos kai he aletheia kai he zoe) "I am (exist as) the way, and the truth, and the life;" Joh 1:4-5, He is the way, the restricted way, not a way, to salvation, remission of sins, and the Father's House, Act 4:12; Act 10:43. He is the truth, who sets men free or liberates them from the slave chains of sin, Joh 8:32; Joh 8:36. He is the Life, without which men are dead in trespasses and in sin, Eph 2:1-2; Joh 8:12; Joh 10:27-28.
3) "No man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (oudes erchetai pros tou patera ei me de' emou) "No one comes of his own choice to the Father, except through me," as drawn by the Father, by the Spirit, who has been sent from the Father, to reprove and convict, Pro 1:20-32; Joh 16:7-11; Rev 22:17.
Jesus is the way of access to God by the atonement, Isa 25:8-9; Joh 10:9; Heb 10:19-20. And He is the fountain of all truth, so that both He and His word are true, genuine, real from the beginning, Psa 119:160; Joh 8:32; Joh 8:36; Joh 17:17. And He is the life to which the way leads, and the life points to Him, Joh 1:17; Joh 10:27-28.
