Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Are you the King of the Jews? Jesus answered him, Said you this thing of yourself, or did others tell it you of me?
Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered you unto me: what have you done?
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
Pilate therefore said unto him, Are you a king then? Jesus answered, You said that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heard my voice. Pilate said unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and said unto them, I find in him no fault at all. (John18:33~38)
What is truth?
This seems to be a fundamental question of human beings, whether they are in East and West.
Is there a clear answer to this question?
What philosopher, which religion does it answer?
In John 18: 33-38, we can see a clear answer by looking at the conversation between Jesus and Pilate.
Did Jesus not answer the last Pilate question?
Jesus already said and ‘testified of the truth’.
Jesus answered, You said that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heard my voice.
‘Jesus Christ is the King of Kingdom of heaven.’
This witness is the truth.
Rather we say, ‘What is truth? Where to find the truth?’, we have to think about what this witness really means.
