With Jesus the Christ the Statement was indeed true.I take a completely different view, for example. For me this is not a play on words. For me, the statement that someone is the truth has a qualitative character and claim. Word games start when you want to leave a gap. To be able to talk your way out in the end that you wouldn't claim to be the truth after all. If someone comes in a profoundly believing environment and says "I am The Truth" and reckons with the soon to come court, that is already a statement and a claim. You have to position yourself somehow. Sure, you can say "That's pretty presumptuous and just one of many". You can say "That's not true, there's not just one way". But what if this statement is true? Then my life faces the decisive question.
The question we must then ask ourselves, what about others that have also made the same statement and also produced fruit as Christ did?
It becomes a journey of self awareness.
