Reflection. Darkness of Religiosity. - Juan 1.4 - 11. By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google translator.
4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness to the light, so that all might believe through him.
8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness of the light.
9 That was the true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world.
10 In the world was, and the world was made by him; but the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. John 1.4-11 RV60

If we study the text we can see that 6,7 and 8 are a parenthesis that speaks the testimony of John the Baptist, who then resume its course in verse 15 onwards. If we remove these three verses we see how the text becomes more thematic unity and also if we replace verse 5 by the Greek text [1] will give us a much tighter translation context:

4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not welcomed.
9 That was the true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world.
10 In the world was, and the world was made by him; but the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
John, speaking of the Logos [2], which is translated Word and the Word says that He was Life, that is was from the beginning, from eternity (John 1.1) and is the Logos that illuminates life the men.
5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not welcomed.

Reading this translation, we can understand that here is not to play physical light darkness (absence of light) but individuals: Light is clearly the Logos and darkness are yours who did not receive (11b), ie religious (Pharisees , Sadducees, Doctors of the Law to which Scripture refers to as Jews)

9 That was the true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world.
10 In the world was, and the world was made by him; but the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

A thing, since He was the author of Creation everything belongs (cf. Heb 1.2) World and Israel specifically speaking to the House of Judah (yours).

Why they would not receive it? Scripture says that when a man does not want to approach the light, is for his evil deeds are not, not to be exposed (John 3:21).

We see then that the Bible does not refer to the world as one who did not want to receive it but theirs, the Jewish religious, recipients of the promise and prophecies about the Messiah who would be born among them. Today it is the same, it is easier than an unbeliever accept Jesus that religious do according to His Word.


Week 70 is at the gates. Religious today not only do not enter the Kingdom, but with his twisted teachings do not let others.


 Religiosity - False doctrines.


[1] Juan 1.5 Interlinear Greek-Spanish Francisco Lacueva.
[2] Logos can not be translated into a single word into Spanish, because in Greek the word contains a concept. Logos is both thought and word that conveys wisdom. John the Logos is the 2nd Person of the Trinity, the Word, the Word, the Son of God.
