The Light of the World

Quiz time!

Who is referred to as “the Light of the World,” a symbol of truth, justice, and loyalty? Who is a mediator between heaven and earth, a member of a Holy Trinity? Hint: he was born of a virgin. His birth is celebrated annually on December 25. He had a Last Supper with his companions before ascending to heaven.

His worshippers undergo baptism, and they drink wine and eat bread to symbolize the blood and body of their deity. They hold Sundays to be a day of worship. They believe in a celestial heaven and an infernal hell. They look forward to a final day of judgment when the dead will be resurrected, and a final conflict between light and darkness.

Still don’t know who I’m talking about?

Mithras, of course!
