Justice, equality and truth

‘What is truth?’ Pilate’s question echoes down the centuries, long after he asked it of Jesus.

James Torrens

His query was prompted by Jesus’s claim that he came into this world ‘to testify to the truth’ and that ‘everyone on the side of truth listens to me’ (John 18.37). Significantly, Pilate did not wait for a reply to his question, but turned his back on the Truth and gave in to the cries of the crowd and the lies of the religious leaders.
