While that seems an unlikely connection, it should be investigated.  At the moment I'm busy trying to pull together my notes on the Apocalypse and I'm busy writing.  If I get a chance to check it out, I'll let you know.

… search for truth, hear truth, 
learn truth, love truth, speak the truth, hold the truth, 
defend the truth till death.

Did a little work on this. I appears that QEOS shows up in the GNT on  
order of 200 times without the article, mostly in oblique cases, as a  
nominative singular less than 20, and almost never [can you find one?]  
as the agent of an active transitive verb. So I wonder, is there a  
link between agency and the use of the article?
