All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
Matthew 11:27

In an age of pluralism, this exclusive claim of Jesus needs to be investigated! And it is a claim to a unique and exclusive "way to God". Just a couple of nights ago while watching a news channel show run through the events of the day, the host brought together a panel of Americans to discuss a comment from our president that America is "not a Christian nation". Included in the panel were an aging model, a former NFL football player, and a political pundit. To a person, they agreed that it is wrong to claim that Christianity is the "only way to God". "I think we all know there are many ways to God". Well Jesus did not preach that!

As we head into contemplation on the events of that Passover Week so long ago, it is good to remember that what Jesus did is exclusive. It is the only way that we may be saved. Jesus claimed it. His apostles preached it. The church has held exclusive claim to it for two millennia. And just because secular arrogance wants human sovereignty to rule does not diminish its impact.
