v 12 Peter said ‘There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved’
The ‘Jesus-Way’ is the only path to salvation.
It couldn’t be plainer, could it! The Jesus-way into resurrection and eternity is the only way.
Sure – we could spend ages discussing and elaborating on alternatives, but no, Jesus is the only way. And it is not just Peter telling us that, Jesus Himself declared it in no uncertain terms. In John 14 we find Jesus being quite dogmatic about it, ‘Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. ‘
That kind of certainty about the uniqueness of faith in Jesus does not sit easily with our present generation. No need to be ashamed of it however, that is what the Good News is all about. We cannot condemn others for thinking and believing differently, but we take a stand on what Jesus and the apostles said – we believe them as opposed to some other version of faith and religion.
The book of Acts follows the progress of announcing that to the world.
