Church of Christ
What is truth? This is a question that Pontius Pilate asked Jesus just before having Him crucified (Jn 18:38 NASB). We don’t read of Jesus giving a reply, but I can’t help but imagine Jesus staring right back at Pilate. Jesus, praying to God, said: “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” (Jn 17:17). What is this word of truth? John gives us the answer: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (Jn 1:1). He continues to elaborate on this “Word.” In verse 14 of the same chapter we read: “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” Do we realize that in Jesus is found the truth?
