Jesus is to be sentenced to death. Despite false witnesses, the Roman procurator Ponsions Pilate could not find any guilt in him and asked: “What is truth?” However, he didn’t take the time to hear Jesus’ response but hurried to the raving crowd who yelled “Crucify him!”. Pilate bent under the pressure of the Jews. He washed his hands in righteousness and had Jesus arrested. Subsequently, Jesus was dressed in a crown of thorns and a crimson color coat, he was ridiculed, spat at, mocked, castigated and crucified.
‘You are a king, then!’ said Pilate. Jesus answered, ‘You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.’John 18:37
Pilate was close to Jesus and still missed “the truth”. How many people are experiencing the same thing? Jesus is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). Truth is not an opinion, or point of view, it is a person! Jesus is the Son of God!
