What is truth?

“Jesus did not say, ‘I will speak true worlds to you’ or ‘I will tell you about the truth;’ he claimed to embody truth in his person.  To those who wished to know the truth,  Jesus did not offer propositions to be tested by logic or data to be tested in the laboratory.  He offered himself and his life.  Those who sought truth were invited into relationship with him, and through him with the whole community….”

“Because primitive Christianity revolves around personal, not propositional, truth, its richest insights come down to us in stories about people.” 

To Know As We Are Known, Parker J. Palmer, pg 47.
