  • Jesus is the only way to eternal lfe therefore he is the light of he world, we also are to be a light in this world to bring lost people into the light, the truth. Without the light we are lost souls!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • We all go through dark times and need the "light" to guide us in the right direction. That's how I interpret him as the Light of the World. He lights the way to Salvation.

  • Because sin brought darkness into the world, and Christ the only who can bring light back to it.

  • Because he is our guiding light. In a world full of "darkness" His "light" will guide us to Heaven.

  • I love how I get voted down for stating actual historical fact- go ahead and look it up. Horus WAS called those things thousands of years BEFORE Jesus was... ignore it if you want, but it changes nothing and only shows how desperate believers are to cling to their stolen myths.

  • Actually, Horus was said to be the LIGHT OF THE WORLD way before Jesus arived on the scene:


    And Jesus was living in heaven before Horus arrived on the scene. But thanks for sharing anyway.

    Horus is the light of the world represented by the symbolic eye, the sign of salvation and also Horus is said to be the way, the truth, the life. So who copied from who, hmmmmmmmmm...
