June 4: “What is Truth?”

Catherine has asked me to post on our blog, a remembrance of June 4 1989.

So here’s the first thing that came to my mind, from the Gospel of John, 18:38.  That was when Jesus was on trial before Pontius Pilate, and Pilate asked Him, “What is truth?”

It was the ultimate and eternal confrontation between Truth and power.   Jesus personified Truth, but the Powers of the World refused to acknowledge any Truth other than their own power.   Consequently, Truth was murdered by power…

…but then the Truth rose from the dead!

What is Truth?   THIS is Truth!:
