The Shared Properties of Jesus and Light

RSR host Fred Williams discusses the remarkable similarities between Jesus' holy attributes and the physical attributes of light. In scripture, light is often attributed to and interchangeable with Jesus. Fred shares both old and new testament verses that refer to God in ways that are very similar to light, such as how light radiates, glows, and provides energy (Exodus 33:20, Ezekiel 1:27 ,etc). Both Jesus and light are also pure and sustain life. Jesus often compared Himself to Light (John 8:12, John 1:8-9, etc). Most notably, light is not a duality as the secular scientist believe, but is in truth a Triality as Bob insightfully demonstrated in a previous RSR show (see rsr.org/triality). Other shared characteristics of Jesus and light include:

-Light dispels darkness and cannot be corrupted.
-Light leads you to the truth.
-Light is communication by written words & symbols to our minds.
-Light is color, revealing incredible beauty around us.
-Light is warmth, giving comfort.

Today's Resource: Genesis - Creation by Bob Enyart
Genesis: Creation - kgov.com/storeA rock cannot make itself and a fire cannot burn forever. Matter cannot come from non-matter and a perpetual motion machine cannot exist. Therefore, the universe could not have made itself from nothing, nor could it have always been moving, churning, working, and burning. Another way to state these first two laws of thermodynamics is that the physical universe must have had a supernatural Creator sometime in the recent past. This study presents the scientifically compelling Genesis story. Of all men, Christians more than any are able to weave the latest findings into our understanding of the fabric of the universe. Since God created the physical universe, good science reveals God. And while some say that you cannot prove the existence of God, the Bible tells us that the clear evidence of His personal, powerful, and eternal existence is manifest through the creation!

The Bible tells the story of human history and the work of God for His creation, and as all good stories do, this story has a plot! Every story has a plot, and a story’s details can be confusing unless you understand its overview. Grasping the big picture will help you reconcile many seemingly contradictory, and controversial Bible passages. Achieve a fuller understanding of God’s plan from Genesis to Revelation and equip yourself to share God’s Word with friends and family. Consider listening to The Plot series based on Bob’s book of the same title. Then enjoy Bob’s other book studies and see how the big picture can help you to better know the living God.
