Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice. Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?” And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews and said to them, “I find no guilt in Him. John 18:37-38
What is Truth? Does truth exist? Today we are taking a look at the interaction Jesus had with Pontius Pilate. Most of us remember this interaction during Jesus trial of his crucifixion. As Jesus reveals to Pilate that he came into the world to testify of the truth, Pilates response is “What is Truth?” Meaning there is no such thing as truth.
Ironically today Atheists and skeptics are using the same argument. They argue that Truth is only a matter of someone’s opinion. Meaning whatever I believe is my truth and whatever you believe is your truth. However the problem with this argument is based on that ideology there is no absolute truth then. They deny the Bible is truth because based on their ideology its matter of opinion, then all books, writtens, and theories have no truth then based on this standard. Going down this road, basically nothing would have any purpose or meaning because there would be no truth.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. John 8:32
Because of this we know that truth does exist, because we exist for a purpose. We are not randomly created. Jesus came here to deliver the truth, and when you receive his truth, you shall be SET FREE
Free from the bondages of sin and death, that we are all enslaved to because of the fall of Adam. So if your asking “What is Truth?” The Answer is Jesus Christ, the way, the truth , and the life (John 14:6) Amen!
