Some Scriptures to read together.

Marriage of Darkness and Night

The Disturbance

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
(John 1:5 ESV)

“The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,
the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—
the people dwelling in darkness
have seen a great light,
and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death,
on them a light has dawned.”
(Matthew 4:15-16 ESV)

The Light of the World by Darkness Slain

“Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?””
