The truth is in high-demand nowadays. Everybody seems to want it. Parents instruct their children to "tell the truth." Husbands and wives want honesty in their marriages. People from every walk of life want to know the truth about God and spirituality. Scientists are obsessed with finding the truth about the universe. The late singer Johnny Cash wrote a song titled "What is Truth?" in which he talked about young people searching for truth in the world.

The United States is in the midst of a presidential campaign season and everyone from news reporters to voters wants to know the truth about the candidates, about what they believe, and how they will govern.

Nearly 2,000 years ago, a man named Jesus Christ was unjustly put on trial. Pilate, who was the governor of that region and who was presiding over the trial, asked a question that so many people have asked since. The Bible tells us in John 18 that Pilate simply said, "What is truth?", and then he left the Judgment Hall and went to address the crowd that had gathered to see the proceedings.

The philosopher, Francis Bacon, said that Pilate's mistake was that he "would not stay for an answer" to his question. But did you know that even before his trial, Jesus Christ had already answered that question? In John 14:6, Jesus Christ said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God, declared Himself to be the ultimate truth. Not only that, He also declared himself to be the only way to God and the only way to true eternal life.
