Following the attempt to compromise Jesus in the situation with the woman caught in adultery, Jesus states that He is the light of the world. This is the second “I Am” statement, and it is a direct claim to be God. It is set against the blindness of those who are envious and jealous of Jesus, as crowds of people attending the Feast of Booths are gathering around Him. He also speaks of His crucifixion, saying that when this occurs they will understand who He is.
