Light / dark in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry

Light and darkness are recurring themes in the Bible, and they are often used as symbols of good and evil, truth and falsehood, life and death. In the opening verses of Genesis, we read about God creating light and separating it from darkness, establishing a fundamental duality that underlies the entire creation.

Later in the New Testament, Jesus is described as the Light of the World, who came to bring the light of truth and love into the darkness of the world. This powerful image of light and darkness provides a rich source of inspiration and meaning for both adults and children.
