John 14:1-6

1 "Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me.

2 In my Father's house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be.

4 Where (I) am going you know the way."

5 Thomas said to him, "Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?"

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

Twice in John’s gospel Christ tells the Pharisees that he is going to a place they do not know. The disciples witnessed this, and apparently they really couldn’t figure it out either. Thank goodness Thomas stepped up and asked the question that was probably on everyone’s mind. The answer is my favorite verse in the bible.
