A healing walk

The proper interpretation of Pilate's question "What is truth?" has been a matter of speculation. What Jesus meant in his statement to this Roman magistrate is spelled out in his life. Jesus had just said, "To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth." See John 18:37, 38; During the preceding three years, he had healed all kinds of diseases, brought the dead back to life, taught how to love and forgive, and shown the way to live humbly while exercising divine power. He had changed the action of what is still accepted today as natural, physical law when it did not bless the inhabitants of the earth.

His use of the Science of Truth was never from selfish motives. Though tempted, he refused to use Science for personal gain, power, or popularity. He acted as he was propelled by God; he spoke as impelled by divine Truth. His actions and teachings convey that the knowledge of God is not something separate from man, which man seeks to gain and use; but that man's being is the very demonstration of the laws of God in action. Jesus lived, moment by moment, not in unthinking compliance with the demands of circumstances, but by spiritual intuition, which brought healing to the circumstances needing it.
