John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us (and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only Begotten from the Father), full of grace and reality.

Translated truth in the KJV, the Greek word, alethia  means reality (the opposite of vanity) verity, veracity, genuineness, sincerity. It is John's highly individual terminology, and is one of the profound words in the New Testament, denoting all the realities of the divine economy as the content of the divine revelation, conveyed and disclosed by the holy Word.

When the divine reality is partaken of and enjoyed by us, it becomes our genuineness, sincerity, honesty, and trustworthiness as an excellent virtue in our behavior that enables us to express God, the God of reality, by whom we live, and we become persons living a life of truth, without any falsehood or hypocrisy, a life that corresponds with the truth revealed through the Scriptures.

Christ came full of grace, the bountiful supply of the divine life, and reality, living out the attributes of God through His human virtues. Oh! How we love Jesus!!!
