John 14:4-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Where [I] am going you know the way.”[a] Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth[b] and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, then you will also know my Father.[c] From now on you do know him and have seen him.”

Footnotes:

  1. 14:4 The way: here, of Jesus himself; also a designation of Christianity in Acts 9:2; 19:9, 23; 22:4; 24:14, 22.
  2. 14:6 The truth: in John, the divinely revealed reality of the Father manifested in the person and works of Jesus. The possession of truth confers knowledge and liberation from sin (Jn 8:32).
  3. 14:7 An alternative reading, “If you knew me, then you would have known my Father also,” would be a rebuke, as in Jn 8:19.
