Inscription: I am the way and the truth and the life. John 14:6 NIV The complete scripture, although not engraved on this necklace, continues: No one comes to the Father except through me. The Gospel According to John, which contains this phrase, probably dates from 66-70 AD the period of Nero's persecution of the Christians in Rome. Most scholars now regard it as one of the earliest written gospels along with Matthew, Mark and Luke. It is believed to be the work of an unknown author who wrote in Greek for a Christian audience. He introduces his work as "gospel" meaning "good news" a literal translation of the Greek word "evangelion".
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
