Check out my guest post "Pilate's Question" over at my friend George Elerick's blog. Here's an excerpt:
Pilate looks up and down the prisoner before him, trying to make sense of this weirdo whom many people regard as a king. He wants this man, Jesus, to just give him a straight answer, but all he gets instead are cryptic statements about a “kingdom” that “is not from here.”
“Aha!” exclaims Pilate. “So you are a king.”
Jesus replies, “You say that I am a king. For this reason I was born, and for this reason I came into the world – to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens tomy voice.”
“What is truth?” Pilate asks. (John 18:36-38)
And it’s Pilate’s question to Jesus that philosophers have been trying to answer for years.
