"The truth shall make you free"

It was after Christ Jesus had declared his Messiahship in these words, "I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life," that he gave utterance to one of the most momentous sayings which has ever reached the ears of men. John records it in the eighth chapter of his gospel; and it reads, "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Now Christ Jesus was unquestionably referring to the absolute truth when he spoke as he did, not to any human or limited concept of it. In his teaching there is the clearest evidence that when he referred to the truth he meant the truth of Truth. His great promise was thus dependent for its fulfillment upon obedience to his word, which had revealed God "to those Jews which believed on him;" for then they should know the truth which would make them free.
