After singing a few songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...
Various Scripture References in Old and New Testament
1 John 1:8
If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.
1 John 3:18
Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.
1 John 4:6
We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
1 Kings 17:24
Then the woman said to Elijah, "Now I know that you are a man of God and that the word of the LORD in your mouth is truth."
2 Timothy 2:15
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.
In the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the word of truth, so that we would be a kind of first fruits among His creatures.
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal faithfully are His delight.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.

John 18:28-40 - Jesus, Pilate & Truth
Pastor Harvey Simpson
Here is the text of John 18:28-40 NASB
Jesus, Pilate & Truth
28 Then they *brought Jesus from Caiaphas into the Praetorium, and it was early; and they themselves did not enter the Praetorium, so that they would not be defiled, but might eat the Passover.
29 Therefore Pilate came out to them and said, “What accusation are you bringing against this Man?”
30 They answered and said to him, “If this Man were not a criminal, we would not have handed Him over to you.”
31 So Pilate said to them, “Take Him yourselves, and judge Him according to your law.” The Jews said to him, “We are not permitted to put anyone to death.”
32 This happened so that the word of Jesus which He said, indicating what kind of death He was going to die, would be fulfilled.
33 Therefore Pilate entered the Praetorium again, and summoned Jesus and said to Him, “You are the King of the Jews?”
34 Jesus answered, “Are you saying this on your own, or did others tell you about Me?”
35 Pilate answered, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests handed You over to me; what have You done?”
36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.”
37 Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this purpose I have been born, and for this I have come into the world: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to My voice.”
38 Pilate *said to Him, “What is truth?”
And after saying this, he came out again to the Jews and *said to them, “I find no grounds at all for charges in His case.
39 However, you have a custom that I release one prisoner for you at the Passover; therefore do you wish that I release for you the King of the Jews?”
40 So they shouted again, saying, “Not this Man, but Barabbas.” Now Barabbas was a rebel.
