The Word was life (Jn 1:4-1:4)

“In him

Was life.

The life was

The light

Of all people.”

ἐν αὐτῷ ζωὴ ἦν, καὶ ἡ ζωὴ ἦν τὸ φῶς τῶν ἀνθρώπων.

John said that the Word, Jesus, was life (ἐν αὐτῷ ζωὴ ἦν).  Yet, this life was the light for all humans or men (καὶ ἡ ζωὴ ἦν τὸ φῶς τῶν ἀνθρώπων).  Without God there would be no life.  God is the source of our life.  Our eternal spiritual life is dependent on the Word.  This life of the Word, Jesus, will be the light for all people.  God created light that brought life to all people, as life and light are the same.  Our new life would come from the Word, Jesus, God.  Light was image of God’s presence or favor.  Is there light in your life?
