What is truth? Am I able to find truth in the things that I do? How is this applicable to me?
Before Jesus was handed over to be crucified, John 18:37-38 records an interesting conversation about truth he had with Pontius Pilate. Here’s the exchange:
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—I to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”
Pilate’s “What is truth?” statement is one of the most important questions one can ask. In fact, how one lives and dies, what and who one values, and what one believes is dependent on how one answers this question. Therefore, determining what is true is the most essential and necessary task of our human existence.
