Just as a satellite photo can clarify the details of our planet – So Jesus Christ clarifies the mysteries of GodJesus is the Light of God and God’sLight to the World.
John 1:1-4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, andthe Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
John 1:9-11 The true light, which gives light toeveryone, was coming into the world. He was in theworld, and the world was made through him, yet theworld did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.
Romans 1:18-21 For the wrath of God is revealed fromheaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever sincethe creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or givethanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Matthew 2:13 Now when they haddeparted, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared toJoseph in a dream and said,“Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt,and remain there until I tell you, for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.”
John 1:12-13But to all who did receive him, who believed in hisname, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will ofthe flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
John 1:6-8There was a man sent from God, whose name wasJohn. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light.
Luke 2:29-32“Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peaceaccording to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in thepresence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel.”
Luke 2:38 And coming up at that very hour she began togive thanks to God and to speak of him to all who were waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem.
John 1:14And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, andwe have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Hebrews 1:1-4Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand ofthe Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
Revelation 21:22-24 And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is theLord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city hasno need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory ofGod gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it…
He by whom all things were made was made one of allthings…. He who fills the world lays in a manger, greatin the form of God but tiny in the form of a servant;this was in such a way that neither was His greatnessdiminished by His tininess, nor was His tininessovercome by His greatness. Augustine, Sermon 187 1.1
He so loved us that, for our sake,He was made man in time, although through him all times were made.He was made man, who made man.He was created of a mother whom he created.He was carried by hands that he formed.He cried in the manger in wordless infancy, he the Word,Without whom all human eloquence is mute. Augustine, Sermon 188 2
