Texts: Jeremiah 31:31-34; Romans 3:19-28, John 8:31-36
Jeremiah, Paul, John, and even Martin Luther all realize the same thing: the truth cannot be proven, it cannot be taught, it cannot be learned or shared or even pointed out. This may seem nonsensical, but psychological studies are showing that even when faced with airtight evidence, people are remarkably resistant to changing their point of view; simply put, facts alone are not enough to persuade us to reexamine what we hold to be true. So how can truth be known? According to Jesus, truth can only be met; it is only known through relationship.
