The central axis of the recounting of His ministry, is His purpose for which He has come in the flesh. He is the way, the truth, and the life. He walked in God’s way and asked His disciples to follow Him. He taught and preached the truth. He delivered from sickness and demons, imparting life everywhere He went.
