Can I compare John 14:5 5-6 from the Bible with anything similar in The Urantia Book?

Thank you for sending this note to us here at TruthBook. I am happy that I can answer your inquiry...

The Bible verse from John 14:5 5-6 is also found in The Urantia Book. Here's the exact quote from the Bible:

5 Thomas said to him, "Lord, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know the way?"

6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

And here's the comparable verse from TheUrantia Book:

When Jesus sat down, Thomas arose and said: "Master, we do not know where you are going; so of course we do not know the way. But we will follow you this very night if you will show us the way."
When Jesus heard Thomas he answered: "Thomas, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man goes to the Father except through me. All who find the Father, first find me. If you know me, you know the way to the Father. And you do know me, for you have lived with me and you now see me."

This is part of a section in The Urantia Book called "Enmity of the World," which was part of the events right after the Last Supper.

You can read the complete speech that Jesus gave HERE. Actually, that whole of paper 180, called "The Farewell Discourse" is a wonderful read.

In the Life and Teachings of Jesus in The Urantia Book, there are many, many comparable stories like this one - and many stories that are not in the Bible ... for example, the stories from Jesus' "missing years."

Thanks again for writing; I hope that this reply has been helpful - and that you are encouraged to read The Urantia Book and discover a whole new way to appreciate the Master.
