At a moment when the answer stood right there before him Pilate asked of Jesus that essential question to which the world’s flawed response has defined human troubles from the very beginning.
Whether the problem is approached from a “secular” context or not, the answer is the same. Just as the relative is subject to the absolute, that which is “secular” is a subset within the ultimate reality of God.
In Latin, the words of Pilate are Quid est veritas?
These words take on a special quality in Latin, because they are actually an anagram. If you re-arrange the letters you obtain the following sentence: Est vir qui adest, “It is the man who is here.”
