Huge Claim by Jesus

        Today's Alleluia verse is John 14.6: "I am the way and the truth and the life, says the Lord; no one comes to the Father except through me."  (In the Gospel reading from Luke 6 that follows, Jesus makes it clear to the Pharisees that he is also the lord of the sabbath.)  You don't have to read that statement a second time to realize that it's a huge claim ~ you either have to take it or leave it, no middle ground possible.  To me, this is the Lord of all speaking the truth with love without the slightest arrogance, as is consistent with all he'd said and done his whole life.
