In John 8:12 Jesus makes a startling statement, ‘I am the light of the World. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life’.

This statement was made during a special Jewish Feast, the FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

In the Temple treasury stood four massive golden candelabras topped with huge torches. There were said to be as high as the highest walls of the temple.

There was a ladder for each and young priest climbed up to fill four great bowls that held over 20 gallons of oil in each one.

IT is said that when the wicks were lit at night the huge flames illuminated all of Jerusalem.

It was a night of feasting and dancing around these great torches

It was in the same place the next morning with smells and memories of the night before that Jesus proclaims, ‘I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD’
