“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)
Everyone is searching for their version of the truth. The media is evidence of people who asking to know the truth. The social media even indicates that everyone already knows the truth – and are not afraid to tell you.
What is truth? Some people consider truth to be what you make it, or whatever works and is convenient at the moment. A growing number of people consider truth to be that which science has proven over the years.
And in our current political climate, many people think that truth is oppressive and should be resisted and silenced.
But truth is not an theoretical concept. It is not a philosophy. It is not something we can prove or disprove. And it is certainly not something that will be silenced. Truth is the very nature of God Himself and is reflected in His perfect and unchanging Word.
And Jesus is this same truth in human form. In John 14:6, Jesus says to Thomas, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
When Jesus was on trial, Pilate failed to recognize the truth of Jesus. For us, failing to recognize this same truth is unfortunate. But it’s even more terrible when we do recognize it and choose to ignore it.
Jesus provides the only path to God and His promise for our eternal salvation. May we put our trust in Jesus and let Him guide us to the Father.
