VAN DER MERWE, Dirk G.  y  ALBALAA, Pierre Y.. The metaphor of light embedded in the Johannine prologue, Part 2: The Light at and after the incarnation. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.47, n.1, pp.424-432. ISSN 2305-0853.

This is the second of two articles on how the fourth evangelist has embedded the light metaphor in the prologue of the Fourth Gospel. The prologue is replete with this metaphor. A thorough discourse analysis explores the text's inner texture to determine the rhetoric and network of semantic relations - regarding light as the subject. From here the text's sacred texture is investigated. Various theological themes are interwoven into the text, with light being a consistent, embedded metaphor, embracing a wealth of facets and interpretations. This research focuses on the embedded light metaphor in the Johannine prologue as it relates to the Word's performance during and after the incarnation.
