About the Meadow Ranch Spiritual Theme

We live in a world where anything can be accepted as true and encourages us to define our own truth. Because of this, we are forced to ask, and answer the question, “Is there such a thing as absolute truth?” And if there is, how does that affect our lives? This summer we are going to take a look at the life of Jesus through the book of John to see how Jesus himself defines truth.

In Meadow Ranch, we will be placed in a Dog world where the court system is the end all be all. Our Jesus character is on trial before Pilate (John 18), and we will be watching the trial unfold throughout the week. Witnesses will come to the stand and testify about what they heard and saw Jesus do and say during His ministry on this Earth. Proclaiming Jesus as truth, just like he does all throughout the Scriptures.

Theme Verse

John 18:37-38

Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world— to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”
