There's a short story by Carmen Corde that tells of a young woman who gives birth to a blind son. "I do not want my child to know that he is blind!" she informs family and neighbors, forbidding anyone to use telltale words such as 'light,' 'color,' and 'sight.' The boy grows up unaware of his disability until one day a strange girl jumps over the fence of the garden and spoils everything by using all the forbidden words. His world shatters in the face of this unimagined new reality.

Jesus is that other-world voice for us that shatters all untruths.

(Story quoted from 'Rumors of Another World' by Philip Yancey, pg. 43)
