God as Light
Hebrews 1:1-3
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,…

1. God is often called Light, because this bodily and visible light is glorious, and in several respects resembles that eternal glorious essence of God.

2. Here God is said to have light or glory, not that glory or light is an accident in God, but because He is said to have that which He is.

3. The similitude here used is taken not from accidental but substantial light, as the same s said to be a light. Purity, beauty, delectability in light teach us something of Him.

(G Lawson.)
