24 – The Hearings

It’s a common phrase used when a person is sworn in for testimony in court:
“Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the
truth?” At the most critical time of determining justice, the truth must
be completely and fully heard. Why do we make such a big deal of telling
the “whole” truth? It is because as people we are often content to tell
and accept “half” truths. Something that is not completely true must
necessarily be partly lie. Satan, the father of lies, is the master at
mingling lies with truth. In fact the best lies contain some truth! But at
Jesus “hearing” before the high priest, the whole Truth comes out: Jesus is
the Christ, the Son of God! What difference did that Truth make for
Jesus? What difference does that Truth make for us?
