It was the closest Pilate would come to life’s greatest discover. Jesus had just told him that He had come into the world to bear witness to the truth. This prompted Pilate to ask, “What is truth?” (John 18:38). The shrewd Roman politician had asked the right question of the right Person, and his answer was standing before him. But instead of falling to his knees in repentance, confession, and faith, he could only pass off the answer by concluding, “I find no fault in Him.”
Sooner or later, all of us find ourselves in Pilate’s position, where we must decide about the unusual Man who claims what no other can claim – that He is the truth.
Throughout history many religious leaders have come and gone, but not one has claimed to be the truth and then proved it by rising from the dead. Millions down through the centuries have found Jesus’ life, His words, and His resurrection to be convincing evidence of His credibility. They have concluded that knowing the truth must begin with a personal relationship with Christ.
Have you found the answer to life’s most important question: “What is truth?” If not, consider Jesus’ statement in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – Dennis De Haan
Not all roads lead to God,
As many people claim;
There’s only one true way –
Christ Jesus is His name. – Sper
To know Christ is to know the truth.
