Another Observation

I read more in John 14 and had another observation. When Jesus was asked questions, His answers were always crafted perfectly for the listener. If His listeners were Pharisees, His answers often did not address the question asked directly. Rather, He would hit the heart-issue at hand rather than the obvious retort. Conversely, when He addressed His disciples, His answers were almost always direct.

For instance, when He was asked by His disciples how to pray, He replied with the Lord's prayer. In John 14, Thomas asked Jesus, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?" To which Jesus replied, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me."
