Light, Dark, and the World in the Gospel of John

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.  -- 1:5

He was in the world, and the world came into being through him, yet the world did not know him.  --1:10

Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!  --1:29

What is born of flesh is flesh, and what is born of Spirit is spirit.  3:6

For God so loves the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but have everlasting life.  -- 3:16

God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.  3:17

The light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.  For all who do evil hate the light. . .  But those who do what is true come to the light, so it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.  --3:20-21

We know truly that this is the Savior of the world.  --4:42

Anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and . . . has passed from death to life.  --5:25

This indeed is the prophet who has come into the world.  -- 6:14

For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.  --6:33

It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh is useless.  --6:63

I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in  darkness but will have the light of life.  --8:12

You are from below; I am from above.  You are of this world; I am not of this world.  -- 8:23

The one who sent me is true, and I declare to the world what I have heard from him.  -- 8:26

You are of your father the devil.  He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth. . . Whoever is from God hears the word of God.  The reason you do not hear them is that you are not from God.  -- 8:46-47

As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.  -- 9:5

Those who walk in the day do not stumble, because they see the light of the world.  But those who walk at night stumble, because the light is not in them.  -- 11:9-10

Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.  -- 12:25

Now is the judgement of this world; now the ruler of this world will be driven out.  -- 12:31

The light is with you a little longer.  Walk while you have the light, so the darkness may not overtake you.  If you walk in darkness you do not know where you are going.  While you have the light, believe in the light, so that you may become children of light.  -- 12:35-36

I have come as light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in darkness.  I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.  -- 12:47

Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.  -- 13:1

This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him.  -- 14:17

Lord, how is it that you will reveal yourself to us and not to the world?  Jesus answered, Those who love me will keep my word.  -- 15:22-23

If the world hates you, be aware that it hated me before it hated you. . . Because you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world.  -- 15:18
