Abstract

Jesus himself best demonstrated eleutheria in this way: "Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world" (John 18:20). This fascinating form is used in many languages and cultures, but it is always most effective when used by a prophet. This is because it is characterized by a "perfect freedom and boldness" of expression, often the hallmark of a prophet preaching the gospel. It is the form where those who speak do not mince words.
