John 1:5—“the light shineth in darkness”

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not (John 1:5 KJV).


Herman Hoeksema & Henry Danhof

[Source: Sin and Grace (Grand Rapids, MI: RFPA, 2003), p. 249]

[According] to the doctrine of common grace, [it is by a power of grace] that sin is restrained and that the natural man is thereby qualified to live a somewhat good life in creation before the face of God. . . [Common] grace is denied in the prologue of the gospel of John. The light did shine, but the darkness was not improved by it and did not grasp the light [John 1:5].



More to come! (DV)
