– John 18:37-38

It’s a shame that Pilate did not wait to hear Jesus’ answer to his simple question, “What is truth?” We can’t know for certain what Jesus would have said, but we know that the night before, He told His disciples, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” Perhaps that would have been part of His answer.
