Verses of John 8
John 8:12 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD ADDRESS, v. 12-59
1) "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying," (palin oun autois elalesen ho lesous legon) "Then Jesus spoke to them again saying," to those in the temple court area who had come to hear Him teach that day, before the woman had been brought before Him and accused of adultery, Joh 8:2-3; Joh 7:37.
2) "I am the light of the world:” (ego eimi to phos tou kosmou) "I am (exist as) the light of the world," Joh 1:4, the world order of things, as prophesied Isa 9:1-2; Isa 42:6-7; and fulfilled Mat 4:12-17; He has brought "life and immortality to light," 2Ti 1:10. Even to the Gentiles, the whole world, Rom 1:15-16.
3) "He that followeth me shall not walk in darkness," (ho akolouthon moi ou me peripatese en te skotia) "The one who follows me will not by any means walk around in the darkness," in despair, despond, danger, sin, ignorance, and defeat, for where Jesus is there is no darkness even in death's valley, Psa 23:4.
4) "But shall have the light of life." (all' heksei to phos tes zoes) "But in contrast he will have, hold, or possess the light of life," the influence of the true life, eternal life, Joh 10:10; Joh 10:28, to guide and to help.
