"I am the Way"

ΠЄϪΑϤ ΝΑϤ ΝϬΙ ΙΗСΟΥС ϪЄ ΑΝΟΚ ΠЄ ΤЄϨΙΗ ΑΥШ ΤΜЄ ΑΥШ ΠШΝϨ
ΜΠ ΛΑΑΥ ΝΗΥ ЄϨΟΥΝ ϢΑ ΠЄΙШΤ ЄΙΜΗΤΙ ЄΒΟΛ ϨΙΤΟΟΤ -- John 14:6, Sahidic Coptic Text

"Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes in to the Father except through me." (My translation)

Many recognize that Jesus is the Way. Fewer recognize that the Father is the Destination. True Christianity does not stop with Jesus. It does not pause along the Way. True Christianity is oriented toward the Father, Who is the Destination, just as Jesus himself was oriented toward, not himself, but his Father.

"Truly My Disciples"

ЄϢШΠЄ ΝΤШΤΝ ЄΤЄΤΝϢΑΝϬШ ϨΜ ΠΑϢΑϪЄ ΝΤЄΤΝ ΝΑΜΑΘΗΤΗС ΝΑΜЄ
ΑΥШ ΤЄΤΝΑСΟΥΝ ΤΜЄ ΑΥШ ΤΜЄ ΝΑΡΤΗΥΤΝ ΝΡΜϨЄ – John 8:31, Sahidic Coptic text

“If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples. And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” (My translation)

Jesus' disciples are those who continue in His word, as found in the Holy Scriptures. Man-made traditions abound in religion today, but a true disciple follows his Master.

That way lies real truth and Christian freedom.
