To Understand It

Entry for June 06, 2008

I was reading John and I got to chapter 11 and had to go back to chapter 1 because of the way Jesus talks to his disciples about light.

John 1:3-5

3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood[a] it.

John 11:9-10

9Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours of daylight? A man who walks by day will not stumble, for he sees by this world's light. 10It is when he walks by night that he stumbles, for he has no light."

The comparison of these two verse sets is critical.

Can a man avoid darkness?

What is day/night?

What is light?
