Are you a natural navigator, or can you get lost in your own hometown? How do you do at reading a map? How about following directions from a GPS? Can you point to "north" right now?

Read John 14:6. What was the “I AM” statement that Jesus made and what is the concept that He was trying to convey to His listeners?

In John 14:1-6, what is Jesus announcing about His life and what is He promising for our lives?

Break down each of the words in John 14:6: way, truth, life. Why are each so important to us in our understanding of Jesus?

How is Jesus our “one way” to heaven? What did He do to enable us to be restored to a right relationship to the Father?

Jesus said: “No one comes to the Father except through me.” How is Jesus both “inclusive” and “exclusive” at the same time?

What do you say to someone who objects to the exclusive claims of Jesus, insisting there can't be "just one way"? How can your group be a place where those people learn the truth about who Jesus is?
