From “How God Became King”. Tom Wright.
The point about truth, and about Jesus and his followers bearing witness to it, is that truth is what happens when humans use words to reflect God’s wise ordering of the world and so shine light into its dark corners, bringing judgment and mercy where it is badly needed.
Empires can’t cope with this. They make their own ‘truth’, creating facts on the ground’ in the depressingly normal way of violence and injustice.
Plus ça change.
