Fresh views on light

I own multiple Bible translations. When I read a citation from a translation other than the King James Version, or read a review of a new one, I often purchase a copy and start reading. When I get a Bible reading assignment, I read it in more than one translation. 

Recently, I have been reading from the New Living Translation, the Common English Bible, The Message, and the New Revised Standard Version. This passage from John 1:5 in the KJV reads: “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” 

In the three versions I’ve just mentioned, there are interesting differences although they convey the same message.
