John 8:12: “I Am the Light”

Sunday, June 10, 2018

We have considered Jesus as the Good Shepherd, The Way, the Truth, the Vine to our branches, the resurrection, the Alpha and Omega. Today we understand him as Light.

Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (NABRE)

We read these words often so that we might remember that Jesus is the Light in a world filled with darkness.

Yeshua spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world; whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light which gives life.” (CJB)

We explore these words often so that we might believe that light can convert the deepest darkness.

Jesus spoke to the Pharisees again. “I am the light of the world,” he said. “Whoever follows me will have the light of life and will never walk in darkness.” (GNT)

We examine these words often so that we might share the good news that the darkness will never overcome us.

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” (NRSV)

We pray these words often so that we might rejoice in the light that banishes the darkness forever.

Again therefore, Jesus spoke to them, saying: I am the light of the world: he that followeth me, walketh not in darkness, but shall have the light of life. (DRA)

We reflect on these words often so that we might act in our belief that we are also the light that dissolves the darkness.

Jesus once again addressed them: “I am the world’s Light. No one who follows me stumbles around in the darkness. I provide plenty of light to live in.” (MSG)

We live these words often so that we might join Christ as the Light that transforms all darkness to light.


When we compare varying translations of this verse, we believe and act with the Light that is Christ.
