According to the Gospel narrative in John 18:38, Pilatus (Pilate) responded to Yeshua’s statement that his objective was to bear witness to THE TRUTH. This was said to get Pilate thinking about his definitions and thereforeĀ Pilate’s response to Yeshua was: “What is truth?” For Roman Governor Pilatus, the idea of truth was simply a cultural term of relativity based on his life in Roman culture.
