Given the season, the typical readings present themselves and I have a hard time understanding them.
"My father's house has many rooms" at first this seems to contradict - "one cannot get to my Father except through me."
Anyway, what troubles me is the second quotation mentioned above along with the fruit of the vine quote.
Both of these quotations are used to support fundamentalist views which I cannot agree with, yet I cannot fit my liberal bent with these words.
Are they historically accurate quotes (as far as we are able to tell) ?
