“No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away.”Luke 8:16-18
Another version of this couplet reads:
As the sun pierces through clouds and mist,
God’s Light shines through the evangelist.
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are known as the “Four Evangelists.” An evangelist is a “bringer of good news” (from eu- “good” + angellein “announce,” from angelos “messenger, angel.” An evangelist—someone who has been touched by Jesus Christ (“Son-kissed”)— is a bearer of God’s light to the world.
Whoever has “ears to hear” and listens attentively will understand and perceive more. Hidden mysteries wrapped in parables will gradually come to light.
