This article argues that the words of Jesus, "I am the truth" (John 14:6), when read in the wider context of John 14:1-6, recall (at the level of either "allusion" or even "echo") the Greek version of Psalms 42 and 43. This argument is based partly on verbal connections between the two texts, but is strengthened by also taking into account the conceptual similarities and a broad similarity in the "narrative" of the two texts.
