Life, Light, Darkness
John returns to the themes of life, light and darkness. Jesus comes as the light and people oppose Him and want to extinguish His light. Light exposes things. People don't want to get too close to Jesus because He exposes what they are really like. However, the light also shows how our darkness can be forgiven. He does not want us to stay in the darkness but live life as it was meant to be. Real life is knowing God. His life gives us meaning in all circumstances.
