Jesus answered him;

"I am the way, the truth, and the life..."

John 14:6

     Christ is the truth.  Truth does not refer to the words spoen about Christ. It is Christ Himself that is truth.  We so often take the teachings and interppretations of Christ as truth, and rightly so;  however whether you agree, accept, or even believe these teachings does not alter the fact that Christ is truth.

     The Bible states that "the truth will make you free".  So we read the bible as if the words will make us free. He is another verse Jesus spoke;

"You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me."

John 5:39

Truth is not found in words but in the very person of Jesus Christ.  If you are reading the bible to glean truth then your eyes have not been opened to Jesus Christ.  If you are talkng about doctrine and principles as your tuth to follow.  Then your eyes are not opened to Jesus Christ.

     If you are living by doctrine or commandments, then you are living for something dead.  Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life..."

     If in your bible study you are finding only wisdom then you are missing God's point.  Everything points to Jesus; (open my eyes that I may see.)
