Jesus said: “The images are revealed to man, and the light which is in them is hidden in the image of the light of the Father. He will reveal himself, and his image is hidden by his light.”
The difficulty with this saying comes more from the lack of punctuation in the Greek and some confusion about who is being referred to in the various uses of the word “he” or “his.” If we read it one way, it appears to suggest that God’s image in hidden in man’s light. But if we read it another way, it could be saying that man’s image is hidden in God’s light.
So, which is it? Well, scholars aren’t in agreement over that question. Some translations suggest one understanding, while others suggest something different.
