“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6

The original name for Christians was not Christian, it was originally called “the way.” The way. Christianity could very much be considered as a way of living. Back then, they had this document before the Bible was written called the Didache. It looked like the Sermon on the Mount. “Didache” means the teaching or the training. It was how you would train a new believer: you love your enemies, you pray for those who persecute you, you live generously, leadership is coming from a place of serving others. You care for children, you care for old people, you care for orphans and widows. Although that sounds common to us who have grown up in a sort of post-Christian culture, it was radical back then.


Make us different, Lord, than the other non-Christians. We want to stand for you; you are the way.


Do you think of the Bible as a teaching guide?

  1. I’m currently reading “The Way of Life, The Rediscovered Teachings of the Twelve Apostles to the Gentiles” with Messianic Jewish commentary by Toby Janicki from Vine of David books. It’s a new translation of the Didache. Highly recommended.

  2. John 14:6 states: “….No one comes to the Father except through me…”
    Question: Does that mean that anybody that does not believe in Jesus Christ comes to the Father?
