Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 317

  1. “I came into the world to testify to the truth” (John 18:37).

To Pilate, Jesus describes His mission a bit differently than we might expect. He came for truth–an idea that encompasses so many possibilities. He came to bring the truth about the Father, revealing Him and His intent in clear and unsuspected ways. He came to bring the truth about life, how God desires we live it and the ethic of love that ought drive us. He came to bring the truth about the Law, how it was designed to help shape our hearts, not just our behaviors. He came to bring the truth of God’s kingdom, it’s true nature and the nature of those who would enter. He came to bring the truth, and those who refuse to respond to the truth found in themselves a desire to silence Him. And that is why He is standing before you, Pilate.
