Λόγος and ἀλήθεια Reconciliation in the Jesus Christ Personality

Western thought contains the system of the fundamental ideas that getting through its entire history determined also the large historical epochs’ individuality. Among them are the ideas of ἀλήθεια and Λόγος. The Christian understanding entirety of Logos-Word depends on the adequate understanding of the Greek school of thought that it follows. The «word» and the «truth» were the closely connected ideas in the Greek philosophy, but with the process of the Greek thought rationalization, the essential estrangement became more significant. As a result the «truth» turned to be «consistent» while human thought become methodological and generative. It is the Christianity that overcame this estrangement by showing their identical congeniality in Jesus Christ personality: «I am the way, and the truth, and the life».
