"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
The Gospel of John 14:6
Over the centuries the above quote from the gospel of John has been used by some followers of Christ to legitimize their misguided sense of religious superiority. If the truth be known, up to date scholars doubt that the historical Jesus actually said these words. Furthermore, evidence points to the likelihood that this gospel was written by a number of authors rather than a single person. Nevertheless, we do have this book in the New Testament because a group of ancient people wanted to tell us something important about the Jesus phenomenon.
Jesus came bearing a message that has the power to alter the destiny of humankind. His message has universal significance because it is all about the human primate learning to tame the beast within. It matters not if you are a Jew, Muslim, Sikh or other as we are all children of the living father. Our species is on an evolutionary trajectory which requires all of us to make the holy wisdom of Jesus the Christ a part of our consensual reality.
