The True Light

The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. -John 1:9‭-‬13 A few observations. Verse 9 says that the true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world, and verse 10 says that he was in the world it was he was coming but he is now really here, so this true light is addressed as a "he" so this talks about Jesus Christ as the True Light, and then in verse 10 second half of that "...and the world was made through him" so everything in this world and everything around us was made through him. The world was created through this True Light, Jesus

Scripture Bank - 1 John

The Word of Life That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us— that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete. (1 John 1:1-4)
