There are several theories regarding how the Hodayot were used. Some believe they were daily prayers, or a moral instruction booklet or even war songs sung after a victory. Menahem Mansoor holds that The Thanksgiving scroll was a private psalter for a select group within a community that modeled the correct way to praise God for deliverance. Svend Holm-Nielsen believes that the Hodayot served a liturgical purpose as hymns sung or recited during certain ceremonies, such as the initiation ceremonies described in the Community Rule (1QS) and the War Scroll (1QM).
So perhaps you're correct...to a point...I'm not sure if I'd agree that Jesus was saying that he wasn't "The Way" but then, I'm a layman...not a scholar.

I believe that when you said that "The way of Thy Heart", and "It's not the Way"...
Could be understood as:
The way of your own heart, is not the Way...by following yourself.
The only Way, is Jesus.
Maybe I'm off?
