Jesus answered, â€œYou say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.â€ â€œWhat is truth?â€ retorted Pilate. With this he went out again to the Jews gathered there and said, â€œI find no basis for a charge against him." John 18:36-38
