Jesus never once hid from the truth. There were times when He chose not to defend himself, but He never hid from it. In John 18:37 Pilate questioned Jesus and He responded clearly, “You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.” Jesus came to the world speaking the truth. Those who believed the truth, and in some cases made a conscious choice to believe, were able to see it. But in most cases, especially the religious leader, they chose to not see the truth because it required change and faith. Let us not be afraid to change in order to listen and believe the truth.
