FEAST OF CHRIST THE KING
What is the truth
I have been born and have come into the world for this reason: to testify to the truth – Jesus said.
Pilate should have asked a question: What truth do you want to testify to? For what reason have you been born and for what reason have you come to the world? This would have been one of the most important conversations in the world.
Pilate however prevaricates: What is truth?
Based on the Bible, we can provide an answer to this statement by Jesus: Jesus has come to the world and He has been born to testify to the truth that God is Love and that our only commandment is to love.
But we resemble Pilate. We don’t ask, “What kind of truth”? We prefer to say: “What is truth” – just like Pilate did.
