What is Truth?



"Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”  Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”
 -- John 18:37-38

I found this passage especially poignant this Easter. Poignant and ironic. Here is Jesus and here is Pilate. Pilate voices the age long question, "What is truth?" to the Truth.

How often have you sought after truth? The basis of life, the reason we exist, the answer to a conundrum you cannot rise above. What is truth? Where is truth? How does it guide you when don't know what/who it is?

Jesus said, "I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life." He is the centerpoint from which life comes. Eternal life. And Pilate --- you --- me --- looks at Jesus and asks "What is truth?". Asking Truth Himself to define Himself. ... and so He did. He picked up our cross and carried it.

Is He your Truth today? Or do you still seek for truth from the One who wrote it?

  1. Oh the audacity and arrogance of Pilate. Truly one of the more stupid people in history. Yet, he was meant to be where he was to further Jesus along to Calvary.
    The Truth? He's mine.
