The Greek word for truth, derives from a word meaning not concealed, so the truth often involves the revealing of that which was formerly hidden.
What is Truth? THAT question was cynically posed to Jesus by the Roman Governor Pontius Pilate. He was not interested in an answer, and Jesus did not give him one. Perhaps Pilate viewed truth as too elusive to grasp.
This disdainful attitude toward truth is shared by many today, including religious leaders, educators, and politicians. They hold that truth, especially moral and spiritual truth, is not absolute but relative and ever changing.
This, of course, implies that people can determine for themselves what is right and what is wrong. It also allows people to reject as out-of-date the values and moral standards held by past generations.
The truth about something is all the facts about it, rather than things that are imagined or invented, In Biblical Hebrew, the term often translated “truth” pertains to something that is true, trustworthy, faithful, or factual. The Greek word rendered “truth” denotes that which conforms to fact or to what is proper and right.
