Chapter 6

Just as I was about to describe what was happening, Jesus spoke to us all.

"I commission the four of you to embark on a great journey with John. Speak the words I give you to the remnant that is in this city. Do not be afraid of the opposition. Remember this: Light always overcomes darkness," he said as the mist lifted.

Woody started weeping. Tom sat with his eyes closed while Mary spoke praises in our native language. I found myself wishing we could stay in this ambiance.

"We have work to do," I said, "It doesn't look like we're going to get any sleep tonight."

"I agree," Tom said, "And what better atmosphere in which to work!"

We started reading through the material on the table. Mary read the book from the bedroom; Tom read the book he brought, while Woody and I perused the information in the books he brought in.

"Let's try to focus our attention on John's writings," Woody suggested.

"Already on it," Tom replied, "I see in the first epistle he wrote he tells of God being a light, and that there is no darkness in him at all and here, in his gospel it says "The Light shone where it was dark and the darkness did not stop the Light from shining."

"I think it's understood, then, that as long as we do what Jesus instructs us to do, we shall be in this light," I commented.
