Light Of The World

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."

5 "As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."

Not Of This World

23 And He said to them, "You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.

42 Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me.


58 Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM."

JOHN 18:5-6 NKJ

Perfectly Revealed God

JOHN 14:7-11 NKJ
7 "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him."
8 Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us."
9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, `Show us the Father'?
10 "Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.
11 "Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.

28 Then Jesus said, ". . . I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things.

A King

Has All Authority
