Jesus said, “The reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”
“What is truth?” retorted Pilate.
John 18:37–38 NIV
Pastor Brian takes an in-depth look at this profound conversation and reminds us that Jesus reveals the truth about mankind. He is the perfect human. His very life exemplifies what we are intended to be.
But Jesus also shows us the truth about the character of God the Father.
Jesus, the image of the invisible God, the exact representation of his person, displays that God is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and full of compassion (Ex. 34:6).
God is faithful; he keeps his promises.
God is just. Sin had to be punished, the penalty for our high crimes had to be paid for (Is. 53).
And God is love; its depth is seen in Jesus as he suffered once and for all on the cross.
