I am the light of the world

Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.      John 8: 12     

 I am the light of the world

I am the light of the world  

The fountain whence a knowledgeable light and spiritual understanding proceed: without me all is darkness, misery, and death. The Divine Being was, by the Jesus denominated, the light of the world.  “The Israelites said to God, O Lord of the universe, thou command us to light lamps to thee, yet thou art The Light of The World: and with thee the light dwelled.” Our Lord, therefore, assumes here a well-known character of the Supreme Being; and with this we find the Jews were greatly offended.

Shall not walk in darkness  

He shall be saved from ignorance, unfaithfulness, and sin. If he follow me, become my disciple, and believe on my name, he shall have my Spirit to bear witness with his, that he is a child of God. He shall have the light of life – such a light as brings and supports life. The sun, the fountain of light, is also the fountain of life: by his vivifying influences, all things live – neither animal nor vegetative life could exist, were it not for his influence. Jesus, the Sun of righteousness, is the fountain of all spiritual and eternal Life. His light brings life with it, and they who walk in his light live in his life.
