"that ghastly luminosity, that stabbing and searing glare"

Daniel 7:9 and Revelation 1:14 describe Jesus as having hair as white as snow, eyes like blazing fire and feet like bronze glowing in a furnace. God is also described as 'light; in him there is no darkness at all' (1 John 1:5). Revelation 21:23 says the city of God will 'not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp'.
