4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:4 (NKJV)

5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:5 (NKJV)

7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. John 1:7 (NKJV)

8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. John 1:8 (NKJV)

9 That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. John 1:9 (NKJV)

19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. John 3:19 (NKJV)

20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. John 3:20 (NKJV)

21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” John 3:21 (NKJV)

35 He was the burning and shining lamp, and you were willing for a time to rejoice in his light. John 5:35 (NKJV)

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” John 8:12 (NKJV)

5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” John 9:5 (NKJV)

9 Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. John 11:9 (NKJV)

10 But if one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.” John 11:10 (NKJV)

35 Then Jesus said to them, “A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you; he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. John 12:35 (NKJV)

36 While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.” These things Jesus spoke, and departed, and was hidden from them. John 12:36 (NKJV)

46 I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. John 12:46 (NKJV)

1 John: 

5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 1 John 1:5 (NKJV)

7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7 (NKJV)

8 Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining. 1 John 2:8 (NKJV)

9 He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. 1 John 2:9 (NKJV)

10 He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 1 John 2:10 (NKJV)
