What is truth?It finally got through to me a few months ago that Pilate asked the wrong question when he was questioning Jesus and finally asked him “What is truth?” Pilate should have asked “Who is truth?” When Jesus said that he is “the way, the truth, and the life,” he meant that he was the literal embodiment. It starts to make sense, “you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” Come to Jesus and Jesus will make you free.

I’m guessing a lot of you out there are saying DUH!! I was raised, though, in a religious culture that meant right doctrine when the word truth was used. “If everyone followed the truth, we would not have all this error.” That would be the line of thinking.

I guess we all know truth to varying degrees. When you ask someone, “Do you know Jesus?” It means so much more than knowing the life story of Jesus. It should mean “have you had the life-transforming experience of knowing Jesus.”
