Bible verses about truth tell us emphatically that truth is Jesus Christ and His word. The truth is not necessarily experiential, but it certainly can be like when one is filled with the Holy Ghost and speaks in tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance (Acts 2:4, Acts 10:45, Acts 19:6). It definitely is not what the "world" declares to be true, or some fantasy one has made up in his or her mind to be the truth.
Here are over twenty scriptures to help us understand what truth, truly is.
