A gravitational lens is a distribution of matter between a distant light source and
an observer, that is capable of bending the light from the source as the light
travels towards the observer. This ...

a ... Nota bene: The light DOES have a certain and momentum (see dual nature
of radiation and matter) and WILL be affected by gravity.
We think of gravity in two different ways - classical mechanics (Newton) and
relativity (Einstein). ... here refer to general relativity, which is fair enough, but the
basic issue of gravity bending light does not require spacetime or geodesics.
