I tell you the truth

by Colin Dexter

Jesus in Johns gospel answers with the phrase translated into English as ” I tell you the truth”.

In effect he says “Amen, Amen  I say unto you”

Amen means confirm, establish, verify something as truthful.

In the Verse in John 8. Jesus answered , ” I tell you the truth(Amen,Amen), before Abraham was I AM.

This was in response to the question I believe we all should ask   “Who are you?.

Jesus in effect is saying

  • I am eternal
  • I was there at the beginning
  • Through the words of my mouth creation came into being
  • I am  YWWH
  • I am the self existant one
  • I have always been and will always be
  • I am He who is
