Phoenix Primary School ‘Where We Rise to the Challenge’

Jesus is 'The Light of the World'

Picture 1 WILLIAM HOLMAN HUNT 1853

Painting in the shape of an arched doorway. Standing at a wooden doorway with rusted hinges and overgrown with ivy and weeds, in an orchard, is the forward-facing, full figure of Christ wearing a crown entwined with the thorns of the Passion, now covered with leaves. The light of his halo is in contrast to the blue dusk visible through the branches of the background trees. Over a plain robe, he wears a jewelled cloak clasped across the chest with a jewelled brooch.

Light improves darkness, allows us to see with our eyes what could not be seen. He is telling his disciples that they are to go out into the world (dark with sin) and show them the way to God, to be a shining light on the path of life.

In the spiritual realm, light represents life. God is light, and He gives life. Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works.

Light of the World is a phrase Jesus used to describe himself.

Reflect:

What situation are you in right now in which you have to have faith and trust in God?

How can you share your faith with others?
