DIG for Monday the 13th of April…..what is truth…..John 18 v 38

Pilate is an interesting man, being at the centre of the account of the crucifixion and death of Jesus.

He makes some very interesting remarks, including the exchange that we see in John’s Gospel.

In chapter 18 and verse 38 he asks a question that man has asked for thousands of years and is still asking today, “what is truth?”

Then Pilate stated one of the most important truths in the history of mankind, “I find in him no fault” (John 18 v 38).

In stating this he is almost being prophetic, giving us a picture or type or shadow of the perfection of Jesus.

He stated that Jesus was perfect; this is an awesome and essential truth about Jesus.

When he said this I wonder if any of the Jews let their mind wander back to when Jesus was baptised, when John the Baptist had called him the Lamb of God.

Jesus was the sacrificial lamb that would be sacrificed for the sins of the whole world, and like every other sacrificial lamb before Him He was spotless, perfect and pure, or in other words He had no faults.

He was not only perfect but He was truth; truth and grace came by Jesus Christ (John 1 v 17).

Pilate asked what truth was yet did not recognise that truth, and that perfection, when it stood right in front of him.

Jesus was and is truth, Jesus was and is perfect, and Jesus was and is the salvation of the world!

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Father God for Jesus and for His finished work that brings salvation to all who accept Him”.

John 18 v 38…..Pilate said unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all
