The God We Can Know Session 6 - Knowing God's Way

"I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life"  

by Rob Fuquay
Discipleship Lent Series

At the beginning of this video, we see Rob Fuquay walking on an ancient Roman road—the Via Maris, one of the highways the Romans built in the Middle East. Jesus might have been thinking of this highway when he said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."

We move with Fuquay to the Upper Room, where Jesus shared his last meal with the disciples and saddened them by telling them he was going away. Thomas asked, "Where are you going?" Jesus said, "I am going to prepare a place for you. You know the way to that place." Then Thomas asked, "But how can we know the way?" Jesus replied, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6). Fuquay remarks that this is probably the most controversial of Jesus' "I am" sayings.

Our next visit is to Jerusalem, where we peer over Fuquay's shoulder to see the Dome of the Rock, a sacred site for Muslims. Looking down, we can see the Western Wall, where many Jewish people come to pray and place written prayers in the wall. Nearby is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, a major pilgrimage site for Christians. Fuquay leads us to think about how Jesus would handle encounters with people of other faiths.

Finally, Fuquay leads us along a path in the Galilean hills called the Jesus Trail. People come to walk this trail and remember many activities of Jesus' early ministry. Fuquay reminds us that Jesus came to teach us about knowing God's way, offering us a new way to live.

Rev. Rob Fuquay is senior pastor at St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, IN. As a pastor to one of the largest churches in the denomination, Rob says as he studies Jesus, he sees someone who shows grace to all people, and he wants to be a part of a church that models that understanding. Fuquay has degrees from Pfeiffer University and Candler School of Theology at Emory University. He and his wife, Susan, have three daughters — Julie, Sarah, and Anna. Rob is the best-selling author of The God We Can Know: Exploring the "I Am" Sayings of Jesus.
