No one comes to the Father except through me – John 14:6

The verse ‘No one comes to the Father except through me’, recorded in John 14:6, is a profound statement of faith. It means that no matter how religious someone may be, he cannot make it to heaven unless he is a staunch follower of Jesus Christ.

To understand this passage, we must first think of the context in which it was written. The apostles were confused and worried about how to follow their Master, Jesus Christ. They had just heard about a traitor in their midst who was predicting Peter’s denial of Christ.

They had also heard that Jesus was preparing a place for them and that He would soon return to take them with him to this place. But they were not sure about where this place was and how to get there.

This was especially true for Thomas who was one of the disciples. He wanted an unambiguous explanation of what was happening and where the Lord would be taking them.

It is also important to note that God had sent His angel to Cornelius and the Ethiopian eunuch, both of whom were religious and god-fearing people who had been serving God faithfully. But despite their good deeds, they were not saved and did not know the right way to connect with God.

These were just two of the many examples in the Bible that prove that no man can enter heaven unless he believes in Jesus. He must believe in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus to get to heaven.
