I dont usually comment much on the Bible Lesson although this weeks lesson from Endtime is very illuminating.
Its from the old days of CS and the subject is Life.
In John, it talks about how the Word is God and in God there is life which is the light of men.
To understand this, it gives a further clue that he who has the son has life.
Although some people think that to have the word is to own a Bible or to eat bread at Church is to receive Jesus. This passage shows us that:
The Word needs to be seen as a message to be understood, not paper.
And, Jesus needs to be seperated into Jesus the man and Christ the message.
Then, on this platform of understanding, Jesus, the word, life, and indeed illumination are the same thing, hence Jesus said “I am the light of the world” and “the way the truth and the life” and about the Bible it is written that the word is “a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path”
So we have a complete exposition here tied up in other verses such as the word becoming flesh, and life everlasting.
