The religious leaders were upset. Jesus, born in a barn, claims as an adult and teacher to be the light of the world. If the educated elite would have studied their scriptures carefully they would have found that the father, son and holy spirit were present / even during the creation of the world. Isaiah prophesied the light hundreds of years prior. This light of the world has publicly made the blind see.
It is a fact that Jesus is no less than the light of the world. No one besides him has done miracles like this! He even woke the dead and rose three days after his own death. He showed that he conquered death! That was the ultimate proof: I am truly the light of the world!
Jesus says in John 8:12: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Getting some bread and cheese just before the shop closes and suddenly the light goes out. The power is gone. The clients are irritated, coolers and tills don’t work. So silly. No light, no purchases, no orientation. Some frantically move around their lit cell phones, but that doesn’t help either.
The bible calls people who are without a relationship with God as people who walk in darkness. The Bible calls Jesus the light of the world. Without him, the essence of life remains hidden in the dark. Even though many want to live without their creator, they live past the most important thing in life. Without Jesus, our spirit remains without light and is therefore dead.
Isaiah says in chapter 9 verse 2 prophetically: The people who walk in darkness see a great light, and on those who dwell in the land of darkness a light shines brightly.
What does it mean to you, the light that shines in the dark?
