THE GOSPEL OF JOHN The Gospel of John links ‘word’ and ‘truth’ when Jesus promises liberation to those who believe in him and remain open to the divine revelation he communicates: ‘if you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth [that is to say, know God as Jesus reveals God to be], and the truth will make you free’.

The divine mystery gives itself to us, but exceeds and overwhelms our capacity to receive it. The revealed God remains ‘invisible, unreadable’, and unknowable in what PseudoDionysius the Areopagite called ‘dazzling darkness’.
