Hugo’s version of 1 John 4:12

Another discovery (how ignorant I have been!) in the midst of writing my essay. In the finale of Les Miserables, Victor Hugo writes, “To love another person is to see the face of God.” Does this not ring true to 1 John 4:12? 

And is it not amazing that Jesus says that if we see Him, we see the Father.

And 1 John 4:12 says if we love each other, people can see Christ in and through us.

This is the true meaning of being made in the image of God  and imaging forth Him – to embody LOVE – God Himself.
