From him Refers to Jesus.

God is light A common metaphor in the Old Testament and Jewish literature for God’s perfection (for example: Psalm 4:6; Isaiah 60:1–2). God’s light serves as a beacon for the righteous and leads others to Him (see Psalm 27:1).

Darkness Serves as a metaphor for sin, unrighteousness, and wickedness (see 1 John 2:8–11; compare 1 Corinthians 6:14–7:1).
