He is that Great Light

"The people who were walking in darkness have seen a great light; upon those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death a light has shone.
"You shall increase the nation; You shall make its joy great. They shall rejoice before You, as in the joy of harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
"For You shall break the yoke of his burden and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Miḏyan.
"For every boot of one trampling in tumult, and coat rolled in blood, shall be used for burning and fuel of fire.
"For a Child shall be born unto us, a Son shall be given unto us, and the rule is on His shoulder. And His Name is called Wonder, Counselor, Strong Ěl, Father of Continuity, Prince of Peace.
"Of the increase of His rule and peace there is no end, upon the throne of Daviḏ and over His reign, to establish it and sustain it with right-ruling and with righteousness from now on, even forever. The ardor of יהוה of hosts does this."
- Isaiah 9:2-7, The Scriptures

"And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."
- John 1:5, KJV
