It is the next question posed by Pilate after our pericope ends this Sunday, but it is alluded to in the last words we hear from Jesus in Year B, “You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.” I sort of wish we had Pilate’s question because Jesus’ words make me want to ask,
“What is truth?”
I also wonder, as I have often on this blog (see yesterday and my post-election day blog), who knows the truth? Jesus said that he is “the way, the truth, and the life.” Jesus promised that “the truth will set you free.” This Sunday he says that his whole mission on earth was to “testify to the truth.” So what is truth? And who knows it?
I have my answers to these questions, but I’m more interested in yours. So, dear readers, tell me, what is truth?
