BEARING WITNESS

From the April 1950 issue of The Christian Science Journal


IN the Gospel of John we read that when Jesus was being questioned by Pilate as to his status on this earth, he replied ( 18:37 ), "To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. " What was this truth to which Jesus was referring? Was it not the truth of God, man, and the universe? We first learn of Jesus' bearing witness to God at the age of twelve, when he tarried behind in Jerusalem after the feast of the Passover.
