One of the most important reasons why God sent his Son (Jesus Christ) into the world, is to bear witness to the truth so that by knowing the truth one can be set free, and according to John 8:36, it is the son (Jesus Christ) that makes people free.

In other to know the truth and obtains freedom by it, he (the Son) gives his Spirit to everyone that believes in him to guide them into all truth, and according to Roman 8:2, the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus (the truth) makes one free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2). This means the truth is the law given by the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus, and John 18:37 reveals something deep about it that you need to know.
Here is the deeper meaning of John 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", this means that he (the son) came into the world to bear witness to the truth, and he was born for that purpose. But the question is, what is the truth that he has come to bear witness about? 1John 5:11 provides an answer to it, that the truth is recorded or witnessed by the son (Jesus Christ) is that God has given to us eternal life, and the life is in his Son. In other words, the truth that Christ came into the world to witness is that God (the Father) has given to us eternal life, and John 17:3 reveals that eternal life is to know the true God and also Jesus Christ.
" Everyone that is of the truth hears My voice.", this means that everyone that belongs to the truth and loves doing the truth will hear his voice, and according to John 14:6 and John 10:4, he (Jesus Christ) is the truth and those who are of the truth are his sheep that hear and knows his voice.
