The Light of the World

Church Educational System
When He who is the Light of the World died on Calvary, terrible darkness ensued. A pall of darkness lasting for three hours also fell on Jerusalem at this time (see Matthew 27:45), and “the earth did quake, and the rocks rent” (v. 51). This same kind of thick darkness prevailed in Egypt during the plagues brought on by Moses (see Exodus 10:21–23).
