A little Bit About
the Middle Ages
(400-1400)
The Kingdom Chronicles:
The Belt of Truth
When we become citizens of God’s
Kingdom, we need to get serious
about the Lord and choosing to live
for him.
We need to be ready for the battle
between the two kingdoms.
Becoming a Knight
-There were only a few ways in
which a person could become a
knight. The first way was the normal
course of action for the son of a
noble
-If you were from a royal family,
you could leave home and begin
your training to be a knight as early
at seven years old.
Becoming a Knight
-At the age of 7, they were
considered Pages
-At the age of 14, they
became Squires
-At the age of 21, they were
Knights
Becoming a Knight
The medieval
knight was the
equivalent of the
modern tank. He
was covered in
multiple layers of
armor, and could
plow through foot
soldiers standing in
his way.
Becoming a Knight
-A knight’s armor could weight
as much as 60 lbs.
-A knight’s sword was so heavy
that he needed to use it with
both hands.
-What would hold the armor
Together?
During the Medieval times
knights wore a belt around their
clothing to keep their clothes up
and to hold their swords.
This belt was the very fits piece
of armor the knight would put
on.
In the same way are to wear
the belt of truth.
The belt of the truth of God
holds everything else
together. The truth keeps us
strong and sure.
Choose Truth
There is a difference
between saying:
“There are no absolutes”
and
“Not accepting the absolute
truth”
Apart from the standard of God,
Jesus and the Word, there is no
way to determine what truth is—
everything becomes a matter of
personal opinion.
And who determines which
opinion is right?
The only basis for determining
truth from error, right from
wrong, comes from
embracing the One who is
the truth.
God is Truth
Exodus 34:6
“And the Lord passed before him
and proclaimed, "The Lord, the
Lord God, merciful and gracious,
longsuffering, and abounding in
goodness and truth”
(NKJV)
Jesus is the truth
John 14:6
“Jesus answered, "I am the
way and the truth and the
life. No one comes to the
Father except through me.”
The Word is Truth
John 17:17
“Sanctify them by Your truth.
Your word is truth.”

muchos fueron constituidos
pecadores, así también por la
obediencia de uno, muchos
