â€˜Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Fatherâ€™s house there are many dwelling-places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way to the place where I am going.â€™ Thomas said to him, â€˜Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?â€™ Jesus said to him, â€˜I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
