In John 14:6, the Johannine Jesus claims to be the way, the truth and the life, and the sole access point to the Father. This verse is often viewed as a stumbling block for the interreligious dialogues and the Jewish-Christian dialogue in particular. By presenting a detailed exegesis and a future-oriented hermeneutics of this metaphorical expression in the Fourth Gospel, Laura Tack opens new avenues of interpretation. She shows that truth, for John, is not relativistic but relational, because truth exists from the moment it is shared. Sharing truth is the dialogical process of revelation and the way that leads to life.
