Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. <John 8:32>

Does the above sentence make any sense to you at all?

For me, I don't know. Because I don't even know how the truth will set me free? Does anyone out here know the answers?

    If you want to know the biblical sense of this, then read from 8:33 to 8:36.
    Jesus explains there that sin makes you its slave and only by being truthful you can be truly free.

    Ral is right. Jesus gives the explanation in the following verses.

    You might also find it useful to note that truth is personified in John 8:32. It's a device of talking as if something that isn't human is human. Here, you can understand trut also to mean Jesus's teaching or even Jesus himself (as the embodiment of truth).
