    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:38

    Le dice Pilato: ¿Qu cosa es la Verdad? Y como hubo dicho esto, sali otra vez a los judíos, y les dice: Yo no hallo en l ningn crimen.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 18:38

    Verse 38. What is
    truth] Among the sages of that time there were many opinions concerning truth; and some had even supposed that it was a thing utterly out of the reach of men. Pilate perhaps might have asked the question in a mocking way; and his not staying to get an answer indicated that he either despaired of getting a satisfactory one, or that he was indifferent about it. This is the case with thousands: they appear desirous of knowing the truth, but have not patience to wait in a proper way to receive an answer to their question.

    I find in him no fault] Having asked the above question, and being convinced of our Lord's innocence, he went out to the Jews to testify his convictions and to deliver him, if possible, out of their hands.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 38. Pilate saith unto him, what is truth ? etc.] That is, in general, or that which Christ then particularly spoke of: many things might be observed in answer to this question, as that there is the truth and faithfulness of God in his word and promises; the truth of grace in the hearts of his people; Jesus Christ himself is truth, he is true God, and true man; the truth of all covenant transactions, of all types, promises, and prophecies; whatever he said and taught was truth, and the truth of all doctrine comes from him. The Gospel is truth in general; it comes from the God of truth; lies in the Scriptures of truth; Christ, who is truth itself, is the substance of it; the Spirit of truth has an hand in it, leads into it, and makes it effectual; the whole of it is true, and every particular doctrine of it; as the manifestation of the Son of God in human nature, his coming into the world to save the chief of sinners, justification by his righteousness, pardon by his blood, atonement by his sacrifice, the resurrection of the dead, etc.

    The same question is put in the Talmud f694 , tma hm , what is truth? and it is answered, that he is the living God, and the King of the World: we do not find that our Lord gave any answer to this question, which might be put in a scornful, jeering way; nor did Pilate wait for one; for when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews : as soon as he had put the question about truth, having no great inclination to hear what Christ would say to it; nor did he put it for information sake, or as having any opinion of Christ, and that he was able to answer it; he directly goes out of the judgment hall, taking Jesus along with him, and addresses the Jews after this manner: and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all ; and indeed how should he? there was no sin in his nature, nor guile in his lips, nor any iniquity in his life; the devil himself could find none in him. This confession is both to the shame of Pilate and the Jews; to the reproach of Pilate, that after this he should condemn him; and of the Jews, that after such a fair and full declaration from the judge, they should insist upon his crucifixion; it shows, however, that he died not for any sin of his own, but for the sins of others.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 33-40 - Art thou the King of the Jews? that King of the Jews who has been s long expected? Messiah the Prince; art thou he? Dost thou call thysel so, and wouldest thou be thought so? Christ answered this question with another; not for evasion, but that Pilate might consider what he did He never took upon him any earthly power, never were any traitorou principles or practices laid to him. Christ gave an account of the nature of his kingdom. Its nature is not worldly; it is a kingdo within men, set up in their hearts and consciences; its riche spiritual, its power spiritual, and it glory within. Its supports ar not worldly; its weapons are spiritual; it needed not, nor used, forc to maintain and advance it, nor opposed any kingdom but that of sin an Satan. Its object and design are not worldly. When Christ said, In a the Truth, he said, in effect, I am a King. He conquers by the convincing evidence of truth; he rules by the commanding power of truth. The subjects of this kingdom are those that are of the truth Pilate put a good question, he said, What is truth? When we search the Scriptures, and attend the ministry of the word, it must be with thi inquiry, What is truth? and with this prayer, Lead me in thy truth into all truth. But many put this question, who have not patience to preserve in their search after truth; or not humility enough to receiv it. By this solemn declaration of Christ's innocence, it appears, tha though the Lord Jesus was treated as the worst of evil-doers, he neve deserved such treatment. But it unfolds the design of his death; tha he died as a Sacrifice for our sins. Pilate was willing to please all sides; and was governed more by worldly wisdom than by the rules of justice. Sin is a robber, yet is foolishly chosen by many rather tha Christ, who would truly enrich us. Let us endeavour to make ou accusers ashamed as Christ did; and let us beware of crucifying Chris afresh __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    38.
    Truth. Not with the article as in the previous verse, the truth. Jesus meant the absolute truth: Pilate, truth in any particular case. "Pilate's exclamation is neither the expression of an ardent thirst for truth, nor that of the despair of a soul which has long sought it in vain; it is the profession of a frivolous skepticism, such as is frequently met with in the man of the world, and especially in the statesman" (Godet).

    Fault (aitian). Properly, cause of accusation. Rev., crime. See on Matt. xxvii. 37, and compare on Matt. xix. 10.

    39, 40. Compare Matt. xxvii. 15-26; Mark vi. 15.
