The Premise - What is the single greatest source of knowledge? Dare we ask, is there one central, great truth from which all reality, truth and knowledge are derived? The French Encyclopedie published in 1728 was produced by Voltaire and Denis Diderot based on rational and secular values. It’s “Preliminary Discourse” was composed by the mathematician and philosopher Jean Le Rond d’Alembert stating:
“Are not the ideas of ‘all’ of ‘part’ of ‘larger’ and of ‘smaller’, strictly speaking, the same simple and individual idea, since we cannot have one without all the others presenting themselves at the same time? And if so could this same truth be applied across the widest conceivable spectrum, until “the universe, if we may be permitted to say so, would only be one fact and one great truth for whoever knew how to embrace it from a single point of view?”
The Problem - A comprehensive concentration on what d’Alembert calls “one great truth” is lacking in all major institutions of higher education and many teaching organizations undermining not only their effectiveness but their very existence.
What is the one great truth as the source of knowledge?

Jesus of Nazareth
As the founder of Jesus College, Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullnessdwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
His self description is, "I am gentle and humble in heart" with a unwavering, sacrificial purpose, "That the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me."
