‘What is truth?’ So asked Herod of Jesus. A fair question in my mind. Not too difficult though.
It is T-ruth. Ruth mean ‘ compassion for the misery of another’ according to Merriam-Webster online. Or possibly ‘sorrow for one’s own faults’. I prefer the former, mainly because if you can be ruthless, you must be able to be ruth, the opposite.
Ruthless means merciless, or cruel, so ruth would have to mean merciful or perhaps kind.
And as I have previously indicated, the ‘T’ refers to the ‘tree’ that Jesus dies upon. Put together we have the ‘tree of compassion’ or ‘tree of mercy’.
And indeed it is, a ‘tree of mercy’. It is said ‘For God so loved the world that he gave His only (really mono-genetic) Son, so that everyone believing in Him should not perish but have life eternal.’
Jesus said of Himself ‘I am the way, the truth and the life.’ He is the key to life.
So if you want ‘the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.’, then go to Him and ask.
It’s as simple as that.
P.S. If you get stuck, you can always ask me and I will do my best to help.
Added 7th September 2022. I have just noticed an anagram of truth is ‘T hurt’.
The ‘T’ of Christ is where our hurts were taken.
And of course truth hurts. The wounds of a friend hurt but are faithful. Jesus is our friend.
