Luke 2:32 A LIGHT OF REVELATION TO THE GENTILES,
And the glory of Your people Israel.”
Even in infancy, Jesus was called “a light of revelation to the Gentiles and the glory of God’s people Israel.” Truly, this was the light of the world in the early stages of His human life. He was the most glorious Israelite who ever lived, and He became the brightest light to the Gentiles that the Jewish people had ever given.
This infant grew up to reveal to the world what God was like, and simultaneously to reveal to humans how they should live if they wanted to please their Creator.
