What is Truth?

In John 18:38, Pilate asked a very important question that would resonate throughout the ages, what is truth?  That is a question that mankind has been asking since the dawn of time.  Budda came along and said what he presented was truth.  The Hindu’s comes along and tell you that if you meditate and clear your mind you will gain and become truth.  The Moslems come along and say if you follow the teaching of the Koran, pray five time a days, visit Mecca you will have truth.  There are many other religions that claim to give truth or know truth.  When Pilate asked this question, he had truth standing right in front of Him.  Jesus was the way, the truth and the life.  (John 14:6)  The difference between Jesus and all the other so called founders of truth is that you know where their graves or final resting places are.  Jesus rose from the dead.  The resurrection is the proof of Jesus being who He said He was.  We are approaching the Day of Pentecost.  This was the Day that the church received the power of the Holy Spirit.  When Luke was recording this event he made one little but very powerful comment.  He said Jesus showed Himself alive with many infallible truths for 40 days and nights.  He even appeared before 500 people at one time.  There were literally hundreds of witnesses who saw Him alive after he had rose from the dead.  Jesus proved He was the truth.  So today as you consider the words of Jesus and the facts about Jesus.  He is the only one who has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that He is the truth.  Don’t be like Pilate and miss the truth when it is standing right in front of you.
