Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
John 11:25-26 (ESV)
I was experimenting with an artificial art intelligence generator. This free website, referenced above, will take any written word or phrase and create an image. I do not know the algorithms or the backgrounds of the programmers but when I typed in the verse from the Gospel of John that I quoted, this striking image appeared. Of the many intriguing qualities of this image, is the glow that highlights this image of Jesus Christ. I typed in other phrases that included God or Jesus and obtained a similar image. If there were other people in the illustration, they did not have this glow. I even typed in the names of prophets and founders of other religions but no glow. Interesting.
There are many descriptions of Jesus in the Bible but in many instances, God’s glory is depicted with light. Perhaps the most profound revelation is Jesus, when He was transfigured before two of His closest disciples.
And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light.
Matthew 17:1-2 (ESV)
Jesus reinforced this image when He described Himself.
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
John 8:12 (ESV)
Is this glow unique to Jesus? It is likely that if I entered more phrases and permutations, the program would attach a glow to other historical figures. Yet, I am pleased that this is a consistent representation of our Lord and Savior. It affirms what God declared since the beginning of Creation.
Whether it is artificial intelligence or intelligence created by man, all intelligence points to the true source, Jesus Christ, the light of the world.
Love and trust in the Lord; seek His will in your life.
