So far I've talked about Jesus, the great "I Am" and "The Way," today lets tackle Jesus as "The Truth." I am not speaking of just the truth we speak, I am speaking the source of ALL Truth, which has been given to Jesus by the Father. Jesus is Truth!
There was a time in our nation and there may still be courts who swear in a witness by asking them to place their hand on the Bible and affirm the following oath; "Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?" The witness would then say, "I do."
When a young Midwesterner enters the US army he to utters the oath of enlistment, and he declares that he will support and defend the Constitution, bear true faith and allegiance and obey orders, "So help me God." And, when a Londoner or Mancunian (resident of England) enlisted in the British armed forces, he swears "by Almighty God" to be faithful to the Crown.
The truth was an intricate and complex characteristic that led to God in our judicial system and our military. It is believed that when someone swore or affirmed that they would tell the truth, that they would do just that or face whatever God would do with them.
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus reminded His listeners of several points of the Law, then said, "But I say unto you..." (See Matthew 5:22, 28, 32, 34, 39, & 44 ) thereby, Jesus equated Himself with the Law of God and the authoritative and basic ideals of righteousness and truth.
Jesus came to this world to fulfill the law of the prophets (Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. Matthew 5:17). And, Jesus as the incarnate, embodiment Word of God, is the source of ALL truth (In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1 ).
When we chose to believe and follow Jesus Christ, we are walking in complete and total TRUTH! Jesus becomes and is our accepted approach to "All Truth."
My friend, if you are seeking truth, look to God's Word!
