In the Gospel of John chapter 8, Jesus said to those listening to him: “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
With these words, Jesus teaches us that truth is the means to freedom.
Truth is a very important part of Jesus’ teaching. He called himself the truth when he said, [John 14:6] “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
