All things were made by him ; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men : and the light shineth in darkness; but the darkness comprehended it not.” Moreover, “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the Only-begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth” (chap. i. 145, 14). The same Evangelist further adds, “Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (chap. iii. 19).
