…the word of a person was only as good as he is. One’s word was one’s life.
This is an enormous truth. That is why Jesus did not fear His accussers. He was committed by His Word. He, above all, lived a life where the word and life were identical. Of no other life can this be said. Either there was a breakdown within one’s word, or there was a breakdown between the life and the word. Jesus, by honoring His Word, offered them and us His life. He did not die merely for justice. He died in prophetic fulfillment, demonstrating that you cannot kill the truth. Thereofre, in a real sense, they could not destory Him either.
I once saw a poster on the wall in the office of a school principal. It simply said, “If you cannot understand me in my speech, how can you understand me in my silence?”
The world will try to interpret truth by its wits. The Christian interprets truth by His Word – and by His silence.
