The quote “And the truth shall set you free.” comes from the Bible, John 8:32. Different Bibles with different translators have slightly altered variations of this quote; however, they all reference the same idea. The truth is meant to represent Christianity, God or Jesus which will set you free from worldly impediments such as sin, misery, or ignorance.
