Of course the Torah was written in ancient Hebrew, whereas the NT Epistles were written in Koine Greek. However the word used to translate the world “light” from the Hebrew (i.e., ohr: אוֹר) into the ancient Greek version of the Torah (i.e. the Septuagint) is the word is phos (φῶς), the same word Peter uses in 1 Peter 2:9, so we can make the connection. God calls us out of our "tohu va’vohu," our dark chaos, into the Divine Light. Yeshua is the Light of the world!
