The article Jesus Christ – the life-giving truth considers the personalistic and Christological conception of truth, whose theoretical foundations can be found in St John the Evangelist’s writings. This discovery of a typically Christian definition of truth in the 1980s has not been taken full advantage of for building bridges between orthodoxy and orthopraxy. In the article we can find suggestions to practice theology in such a way that, on the one hand, it would be able to analyze present events, and on the other it could maintain a sufficient distance to assess them. The work and Person of Jesus Christ became a model of this combination, as he preached truth with His word and His life in order to lead people to salvation.
