A Light to Guide

Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. …

… And, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

I am … the bright and morning star.

A Light in the Darkness

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. …

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. …

That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

A Light to the World

The angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
