Truth is liberating. Jesus said in John 8:32, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” We can be blinded to truth through ignorance, tradition, and a willful choice to embrace a lie. The consequences for living lives of uncorrected error are grave.
The religious leaders of Jesus’ day had centuries of Old Testament prophetic clarity, answering who, what, where, when and how the Messiah would appear. These prophecies were missed or ignored because the Jewish leaders would not accept the truth. Their blindness and hardness affected their eternal destiny and the destinies of myriads of lives to follow. How we handle truth is vitally important. Mark Byers gives practical teaching and insights from scripture to live a life led by the One who is light and truth.
