What Does the Bible Say About Light?

mportant Note: Before reading theseBible verses about light, it is my hope, first and foremost, that we remember that the Bible wasn't written to us, but for us. I say this because these Bible verses about light are singled out and obviously removed from their original context. In doing so, I am not advocating study that replaces thorough and contextual exegetical study. It is my prayer that we remember to study the Bible as best we can in its original context before we recontextualize and seek its application to our own lives. Nevertheless, these Bible verses about light remind us that God is light, provides direction, and eliminates darkness. Moreover, they describe how we can and ought to be a light to the world. With all of this in mind, here are 25 Bible verses about light. My favorite is Isaiah 42:5-7.

He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.

I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, 7 to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.


Isaiah 42:16 (#15 of 25 Bible Verses about Light)

It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. 14 "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.

When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness. 35 See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness.

John 1:3-5(#22 of 25 Bible Verses about Light)
