Dear friend of St. Athanasius Academy:
The Academy offers the following:
Jesus, being the Christ, is the Truth by His Divine nature, the “I AM” of Ex. 3:14 and Jn 8:58. Said another way, I, Jesus, AM the Christ, Who is the Truth. And being our expression of Truth, through His Incarnation, He set us free from the fear of death, sins, and empty delusions of Satan. (Gal 5:1, 1 Jn 3:8.)
In summary: 1) Jesus is the Who and a unique Person, 2) Christ is “the What” or two natures of Jesus – human and divine, 3) the Quality of His two natures is being fully God, fully man; Son of Man and Son of God, and 4) by these essential Qualities – He, being the I AM, is our Way, Truth, and the Life (Jn 14:6). And only through Him being the Way, Truth, and Life, can we come to know our Father.
