“I am the light of the world.”

Who follows Jesus shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

John 8:12-20

  • Pharisees object that Jesus speaks for himself. Jesus counters that personal testimony is not necessarily false; and in his case is absolutely true.
  • Jesus calls Hebrew law to the witness stand to confirm that his testimony is true because both he and God the Father say so.
  • He further posits that to know him is to know God. Yet many who profess to know God know nothing of Jesus.
  • Jesus was “untouchable” because the hour of his sacrifice had not yet come.
