John 17:3 ASV "And this is life eternal, that they should know thee the only true God, and him whom thou didst send, even Jesus Christ.

Is our gaining eternal life tied to knowing the "only true God and him whom He sent, Jesus Christ" ?

  • Yes it is. and this is the life age-during, that they may know Thee, the only true God, and him whom Thou didst send -- Jesus Christ; [YLT] Interpretations attempt to avoid the fact. But this is eternal life . . . . . and nothing else is.
