John 14:6 Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me.
The synonym of Jesus is salvation, then seeing that salvation is telling us "I am the way, and the truth, and the life" really tells us that we are lost, in lies and death, because salvation was manifested to men to make them understand that their way of life is wrong, that's why he shows up, because he knows that the way of life we lead will lead us to death, to a condemnation without knowing what the beauty of life really is.
John 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
Life is justice, peace and joy.
Because only in the name of Jesus there is salvation.
When Jesus Christ appears, he not only discovers what is wrong, but he shows himself for salvation so that we change the course from the path of condemnation to the path of salvation, from living in a lie to living in a truth, that the delights that made us feel alive they are really lies and death, and that the true life is what he presents, a life of justice, peace and joy.
16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but so that the world might be saved through Him. 18 The one who believes in Him is not judged; the one who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the Light; for their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light, so that his deeds will not be exposed. 21 But the one who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds will be revealed [a]as having been performed in God.”
