I will be making periodic bible study entries on various topics and verses that I might be thinking about. Throughout these entries I will use a variety of translations and commentaries to further the discussion as well as further the discussion on these topics. Enjoy!
I recall an episode of Star Trek: Voyager titled "Death Wish". The humans in the show are given an opportunity in a scene to explore a dimension where Omnipotent beings exist known as the "Q Continuum". Since this dimension could not be comprehended by human in it's entirety, it was represented as a road that extended in 2 directions going on into infinity.
John 14:6 (Wuest)
Jesus says to him, "I alone, in contradistinction to all others, am the road and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me"
In the Wuest translation the word "road" is used instead of the common "way" we are so familiar with. Soo commonly some Christians have used this verse in a manner to describe Jesus as the only way to heaven and that his "way" is the only way. Without context, this can be both right and wrong at the same time. The context used by Christians is often rigid and gives the idea that other "paths" lead nowhere.
What if we looked at it in a different context? What if there was no other "path"? No other "road"? We can see in Colossians 1:16 that Christ is essentially the binding agent or factor that holds all things together.
So the question that came up for me was, do all roads lead to Jesus? Yes!
Jesus is the road. There are no other roads. All of mankind is on "The Road."
