Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me”. John14:6
The first entrance, into the outer court, is the Gate which is called The Way. All who put their faith in Jesus come in through The Way. These are the ones who have truly put their faith in Jesus Christ, and also those who have merely “accepted” Christ. Most of these do not proceed past the outer court, but remain therein. Those priests who proceed into the Holy Place have entered in the Door known as The Truth. They listen, learn, see, hear, understand and know The Truth. These follow Jesus Christ on the narrow path, doing His will and abiding in The Truth, bearing good works, spiritual fruit and true worship. Through the Veil we enter in through the blood of Jesus Christ to the Holy of Holies, to be with God, which is called, the Life. This is the path to the Father. No one comes to the Father, but through Him. This is why our Lord’s claim to be the Way, the Truth and the Life made the religious leaders so mad. The religious professionals taught that salvation was only through them, and through their religious System. But Jesus proclaimed the wonderful news that it is all through Him alone.
