Shining a light on the weekly Bible Lessons published in the Christian Science Quarterly®
. . . you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
—New King James Version®
Make . . . free is translated from the Greek verb eleutheroō. Romans 8 renders this word two ways: “The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free [eleutheroō] from the law of sin and death” (v. 2) and “The creature itself also shall be delivered [eleutheroō] from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God” (v. 21).
