- The teaching of Jesus is called the truth (Galatians 2:5).
- Jesus called himself the truth (John 14:6).
Key verse about truth: They sent their disciples to him along with the Herodians. “Teacher,” they said, “we know that you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren’t swayed by others, because you pay no attention to who they are. ( Matthew 22:16, NIV)
