What is the Truth? A dissection into what Jesus meant by being a witness to the Truth and an answer to the unanswered question.
As a young child, I grew up watching this movie and I have always been fascinated by that particular scene, where Pontius Pilate asked Master Jesus the Christ the question, “What is the Truth?”
But what is even more profound is the statement Jesus Christ made that prompted the unanswered question.
37“Then You are a king!” Pilate said. “You say that I am a king,” Jesus answered. “For this reason I was born and have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to My voice.” 38“What is truth?” Pilate asked. And having said this, he went out again to the Jews and told them, “I find no basis for a charge against Him.
In the movie and from the Holy Bible it seemed as if the question was left unanswered and so as a young child, I had often pondered on the question and will now try to answer it.
What is Truth? According to Wikipedia
According to Wikipedia ” Truth is most often used to mean being in accord with fact or reality, or fidelity to an original or standard. Truth is also sometimes defined in modern contexts as an idea of “truth to self”, or authenticity.
An Analogy of Truth Using the Jigsaw Puzzle
Truth can be likened to a jigsaw puzzle and any piece that does not fit into place is a lie.
God the creator of the Universe is the foundation, the independent reality, the Truth. The foundation of the entire Universe is built on Truth and Truth is established in Law and Order. Any falsehood can be easily detected when the missing piece or the false piece of the puzzle does not fit into the whole. It is only a question of time but the falsehood would be sooner or later disovered.
Truth in the Pyramid of Ideals
Truth the Foundation.
God the creator of the Universe is the foundation of the World, the independent reality. He is the Truth. The one whom Jesus the Christ and the Holy Spirit bear witness to and are. The foundation of the entire Universe is built on Truth and Truth is established in law and order. God’s holy ones, bear witness to Truth and bring about justice to keep law and order, (Truth) in place.
In the Pyramid of Ideals illustrated by the Rosicrucians, Truth is the first piece of block used. It is the foundation stone for other ideals. Truth is the virtue for meditative focus (medifocus) in the month of September, for the Rosicrucians. September is the 9th month of the year and in numerology, the esoteric meaning of the number nine (9) is associated with the idea of completeness and perfection and related to the synthesis of the three worlds, that is a triple trinity (God, the universe, man).
Truth Cited In The Holy Bible, Holy Quran, Mystic/Occult
In the Holy Bible, John 8:32, Master Jesus the Christ said;
“And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free”
In the Holy Quran, Chapter 17:81.
“Truth has come and falsehood has vanished. Indeed falsehood is ever bound to vanish.
There is a Latin phrase used by some mystics and occultists
“Vi veri Universum vivus vici” translated to mean, “By the power of truth, I while living have conquered the universe”
Most mystics believe in Pantheism; i.e. “God is all around us and exists throughout the Universe in all things” and this brings me to conclude with what Master Jesus the Christ said in John 4:24
” God is spirit and those who worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and Truth.
This “Truth” brings about freedom (Illumination).
“And ye shall indeed know the truth and the truth shall set you free”.
