Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Verse 6 (John 14:6)

I am the Way - That leads so the Father: - the Truth that teaches the knowledge of God, and directs in the way: - the Life that animates all those who seek and serve him, and which is to be enjoyed eternally at the end of the way.

Christ is the Way:

  1. By his doctrine, John 6:68 .
  • By his example, 1 Peter 2:21 .
  • By his sacrifice, Hebrews 9:8 , Hebrews 9:9 .
  • By his Spirit, John 16:13 .
  • He is the Truth:
    1. In opposition to all false religions.
  • To the Mosaic law, which was only the shadow, not the truth or substance, of the good things which were to come. And
  • In respect to all the promises of God, 2 Corinthians 1:20 .
  • He is the Life, both in grace and glory; the life that not only saves from death, but destroys it.

    No man cometh unto the Father - By any other doctrine, by any other merit, or by any other intercession than mine.
