Truth is so scarce that nearly everyone is suspect. Our whole society is largely built on a network of fabrication, of manufactured “truth.” The Jews of Jesus’ day revered the idea of truth in principle, but in practice it was buried under their system of tradition. In Matthew 5:33–37 Jesus exposes their convenient distortion and contradiction of the divine revelation they claimed to love and teach.

Outline
Just Tell the Truth (Matthew 5:33–37)
I. Old Testament Principles (5:33)
II. Perversion of the Truth (5:33)
III. The Perspective of Divine Truth (5:34-37)

Bible Text
Matthew 5:33–37
“Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’
34 But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne;
35 nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.
36 Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black.
37 But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.
