We will never know what would have happened, had Pilate waited for Jesus to answer. One thing we do know; he found no fault in Him.
There are many ways for us to look at everything that takes place in this life. We each have a perspective that is never exactly the same as another’s…many times close, but not quite the same. It is imperative to understand that perspective is Not presuming or assuming! A small amount of either of those is lethal!
The scriptures are open to our perspective and that can be a useful learning tool for each of us. To listen to another’s perspective is to open one’s mind; to lock into one’s own perspective is to close one’s mind.
Truth belongs to no one person for truth is a community of more than one. Remember, the body of Christ is one with many members and all of them necessary. As “no man is an island unto himself,” so too, truth is not a possession of one.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6 NIV)
