(We) don’t see light; we see what it touches. It is more or less invisible, made from nothing, just purposed and focused energy, infinite in its power (if fired into a vacuum, it will go on forever). How fitting then for God to create an existence, then a metaphor, as if to say, here is something entirely unlike you, outside of time (since light is faster than time), infinite in its power and thrust: here is something you cannot understand. Throughout the remainder of the Bible, God calls Himself light.
