Meditations on Christ the Redeemer

The Logos is light. He is the light—that is, the light which is the very essence of God. The Baptist, indeed, preaches truth; but the Baptist must not be confounded with the light which he heralds. The Logos is the true light. All that has really enlarged the stock of intellectual truth or of moral goodness among men, all that has ever lighted any soul of man, has radiated from Him. He proclaims Himself to be the Light of the World, and the Truth, and His Apostle, speaking of the illumination shed by Him upon the Church, reminds Christians that “the darkness is passing, and the true light now shineth.

—Canon H. P. Liddon (1829–1890)
