I Tell You the Truth

Jesus enjoys telling the truth. He told his disciples maybe 60 times, “I tell you the truth”. He told the truth about all kinds of things: about how much we really love him, about what is to come, and about what he would do for us. Some of Jesus’ truth telling is difficult to understand. Even so, it is clear that he is devoted to telling the truth.

Jesus told the truth about 70 times in the Gospels. Some citations are repeats - Matthew, Mark, and Luke often reported the same event. The individual passages don't always tell us a lot out of context. But we've reproduced them below for your reading pleasure. Perhaps they will spark your interest for further study.

Matthew 5:26 "I tell you the truth, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny."
