What is Truth?

Detail of the Passion Façade on Antoní Gaudi's Sagrada Familia church, in Barcelona.

The entire façade is covered with scenes from the Passion of Christ, his betrayal, arrest, torture, and death. On the left you can see Christ bound to the pillar where He was flogged before being led out to the hill of Golgotha for crucifixion. The doors into the church are are covered in phrases from the Gospels that describe the Passion. Highlighted are Pontius Pilate's question to Christ "What is Truth?" from the Gospel of John 18:38, and "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews", the inscription that Pilate ordered be placed on the cross.
