I've never been a hunter, so I have no experience in tracking an animal. But I've played plenty of games of "Hide 'n Seek" and "Sardines", so I know what it's like to try to find someone after they've hidden themselves.
In John 14, Thomas thinks that Jesus is telling his disciples that he is about to go into hiding and that they should find him. Since I was raised watching Looney Tunes cartoons, I immediately think of the dopey hound dog searching for Bugs Bunny. "Which way did he go, George?! Which way did he go?!"
Jesus' response was another of his "I AM" statements which has become the most controversial thing he ever said:
Jesus told him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me."
I hope you can join us this Sunday, March 19th, as we unpack this statement. What does it mean for the people searching for spiritual fulfillment and truth? And what does it mean for those of us who are Jesus-followers?
