9-13The Life-Light was the real thing:Every person entering Lifehe brings into Light.He was in the world,the world was there through him,and yet the world didn’t even notice.He came to his own people,but they didn’t want him.But whoever did want him,who believed he was who he claimedand would do what he said,He made to be their true selves,their child-of-God selves.These are the God-begotten,not blood-begotten,not flesh-begotten,not sex-begotten.
