The only way that I can understand this is to think that if Jesus said it he was referring to the way, the truth and the life in each of us and all of us. He would have been saying that the Light, the Christ is in all of us not just him. Jesus did not invite us to worship him or to look to him for salvation, he invited us to follow God’s will. He told us to look within ourselves and amongst ourselves for the Kingdom of God. (Luke 17:21). Knowing and doing the will of God expresses the Christ within us and makes us brothers and sisters of Jesus and of each other as Children of God (Matthew 12:49).
