“Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?” And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them, “I find no fault in Him at all.” – John 18:38
Pilate was being sarcastic here. He was saying truth can’t be known. He was inferring that there is no objective truth. Pilate was the first post modernist!
The irony is – truth can be known, truth is objective, and Pilate was face to face with Truth: Jesus Christ!
Yet he, like so many today, reject the truth of Jesus. And often they reject it with smug sarcasm. That doesn’t change the fact that Jesus is the truth (John 14:6).
