John 1:5

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. Coudl it be otherwise? Quite apart from anything else, how completely does the light comprehend the darkness anyway? To shine is only synonymous with to comprehend in oblique and poetic metaphor. Or to put it another way: and and the darkenss maketh shadows within the light, and the light comprehendeth it not.
