John 1:3,4: "All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men." 'All things were made through Him' - God the Father created the world through God the Son (Col.1:16; Heb. 1:2). All creation was made through Him. Thus He is the Creator God. Note the "life" is not said to have been created; life existed in Christ. Humans are dependent of God for life. Our existence, spiritually and physically, depend on God's sustaining power. In contrast, the Son has life in Himself from all eternity. The life, Jesus Christ, is also 'the light of men.' This image conveys the concept of revelation. As the light, Jesus Christ reveals both sin and God to humans. Death and darkness flee when the life and light enter. The dead are raised and the blind receive their sight, both physically and spiritually.
