What is Truth?

Jesus answered [Pilate], “You say that I am a king.
For this purpose I was born, and for this purpose I have come into the world
—to bear witness to the truth.
  Everyone who is of the truth, listens to me.”

Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”
-John 18:37-38 (ESV)
 
 
WHAT IS TRUTH?”  This was Pilate’s infamous, sarcastic and snarky response to Jesus’ statement of purpose—that of bearing witness to the truth.  It is clear that our generation is not the first to lose its grip on truth.
