Finishing today’s reading, I can’t help thinking about how pathetic Pilate was. Here was the man that should be the one to determine the guilt or innocence of a man (basically find out the truth of a situation), and all he can say is, “What is truth?” (vs 38).
Can you imagine when the day comes, when, “Every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.” (Rom. 14:11, Phil 2:10 & Isaiah 45:23)? Pilate is going to drop to his knees, shaking like a leaf, thinking, “I had truth right in front of me and I walked away from him!”
What a dramatic picture! But, in essence, every person who rejects Jesus will have that moment of realization that truth was in front of them. (Rom 1:20). Whatever excuse they give as to why they rejected Jesus (Truth) will sound just as pathetic as Pilate’s. 😖
