The light shines through the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
God sent John the Baptist
to tell everyone about the light so that everyone might believe because of his testimony.
John himself was not the light; he was only a witness to the light.
The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, was going to come into the world.
