Identities of Christ
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.(John 1:1-5, 14) KJV

He was with with God, and he was God.
The universe was made from him; nothing can exist that is not from him.

The light shone even though it was obscured by the life that was made from him.
