In the Johannine works, he uses this expression often.
Is this expression a metaphor for walking "as a blind
person"? And would walking EN TWi FWTI be a metaphor
for walking "as one who sees clearly"? I would further
ask if these expressions would be understood in a
"spiritual" sense, so that walking "as a person blind
to spiritual truth" contrasts with the individual who
walks "as a person who sees/perceives/understands
spiritual truth." Since John uses polar opposite
expressions frequently, he seems to be contrasting
these two types of individuals at the extreme ends of
the spiritual perceptive spectrum. Is this reading too
much into these expressions?
