John 1:1-5 – The apostle John helps his readers to understand something about light and darkness. Something that we, too, also need to cling to. John proclaims in this text that the light is victorious over darkness. The text answers questions like: Why is the light victorious over darkness? How can we be sure that darkness won’t eventually win out?
1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
