Text: John 18:28-40 | Series: John 12-21

Pilate’s scornful words to Jesus in a private conversation in Jerusalem over 2000 years ago remain eerily relevant in today’s postmodern world which often denies the reality of absolute Truth.

Yet, in stark contrast to the world’s relativism, a carpenter from Nazareth defiantly declares to Pilate, “For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth” (John 18:37b).

In today’s sermon from John 18:28-40, we learn of this Truth to which Jesus bore witness.

It’s the Truth that Pilate and today’s relativists fail to accept.
It’s the Truth that hypocritical religious people, both ancient and modern, fail to embrace.

This Truth is that Jesus the King, has come to establish a Kingdom from above, a Kingdom that overcomes the world’s sin and injustice by the ultimate, glorious act of gracious injustice in which the innocent King will be condemned while guilty criminals who rejected and condemned Him will be set free.
