“To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, ‘If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
I was thinking about these verses this morning and also another one in John. Pilate, the Roman governor is speaking with Jesus and he asks:
“What is truth?” John 18:38
Pilate, of course, was all wrong. He was even asking the wrong question. His question and ours should be not “what is the truth?” but “who is the truth?” We all know that words can be manipulated; facts can be obscured; data can be skewed. There are people and publications we can’t trust. To believe in the message, you must trust in the person delivering it.
Jesus told his disciples:
“I am the way and the truth and the life.” John 14:9
The Bible isn’t just words, it is THE WORD. Jesus isn’t just a good teacher He is THE SON OF GOD. We can trust Him. Read the Bible. Get to know Him.
“Then you will know THE TRUTH, and THE TRUTH will set you free.” John 8:32
