Then Jesus told them, "You are going to have the light just a little while longer.  Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you.  The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going.  Put your trust in the light while you have it, so that you may become sons of light."  When he had finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them.  Even after Jesus had done all these miraculous signs in their presence, they still would not believe him.  John 12:35-37
