There are numerous scriptures which suggest Jesus represents the sun. Remember in the old
days light bulbs didn't exist, the only true light was the Sun. When the
sun went down it got dark. The best you could do back then was make a fire, light some
candles, and wait for tomorrow when the sun would return.
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world."
(The "light of the world" is the Sun.) John 9:5
While I am in the world, I am the light of the world. (The "light of the
world" is the Sun.) Matthew 4:16
The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land
of the shadow of death a light has dawned." (The light is the
Sun) Matthew 17:2His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. John 1:3-8
Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
(Without the Sun nothing would grow and we'd all be dead.) In him was
life, and that life was the light of men. (The light is the
Sun.) The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome
it (the Sun removes the darkness). There came a man who was sent from
God; his name was John. He [John] came as a witness to testify
concerning that light(the Sun), so that through him all men
might believe. He [John] himself was not the light; he came
only as a witness to the light. The true light(the
Sun) that gives light to every man was coming into the world. John 3:19-20
This is the verdict: Light(the Sun) has come into the world,
but men loved darkness (night time) instead of light(the Sun) because their deeds were evil (criminals do
their crimes at night). Everyone who does evil hates the light(the Sun), and will not come into the light(the Sun) for fear that his deeds will be exposed. John 12:35-36
Then Jesus told them, "You are going to have the light(the
light is the Sun) just a little while longer (the Sun will
set soon). Walk while you have the light(the light is
the Sun), before darkness (night time) overtakes you.
The man who walks in the dark (at night) does not know where he is
going. Put your trust in the light(the light is the
Sun) while you have it, so that you may become sons of light." When he had
finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them (i.e. the sun set,
because Jesus is the Sun). John 12:46
I have come into the world as a light(the Sun), so that no
one who believes in me should stay in darkness. Ephesians 5:14
Christ (the Sun) will shine on you. Philippians 3:20
For our conversation is in heaven (the celestial sphere above); from
whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ (the Sun).
(i.e. we should look upwards to the celestial sphere above to find our story.) Colossians 3:2
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. (i.e. the story is about the passage of the year.)
The Old Testament also talks about God as being the Sun
