The Sixth Sign: Healing a Man Born Blind

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:1 -

As he was passing by, he saw a man blind from birth.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:2 -

His disciples asked him: “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:3 -

“Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” Jesus answered. “This came about so that God’s works might be displayed in him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:4 -

“We[fn] must do the works of him who sent me[fn] while it is day. Night is coming when no one can work.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:5 -

“As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:6 -

After he said these things he spit on the ground, made some mud from the saliva, and spread the mud on his eyes.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:7 -

“Go,” he told him, “wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means “Sent”). So he left, washed, and came back seeing.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:8 -

His neighbors and those who had seen him before as a beggar said, “Isn’t this the one who used to sit begging? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:9 -

Some said, “He’s the one.” Others were saying, “No, but he looks like him.”

He kept saying, “I’m the one.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:10 -

So they asked him, “Then how were your eyes opened? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:11 -

He answered, “The man called Jesus made mud, spread it on my eyes, and told me, ‘Go to Siloam and wash.’ So when I went and washed I received my sight.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:12 -

“Where is he? ” they asked.

“I don’t know,” he said.

The Healed Man’s Testimony

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:13 -

They brought the man who used to be blind to the Pharisees.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:14 -

The day that Jesus made the mud and opened his eyes was a Sabbath.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:15 -

Then the Pharisees asked him again how he received his sight.

“He put mud on my eyes,” he told them. “I washed and I can see.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:16 -

Some of the Pharisees said, “This man is not from God, because he doesn’t keep the Sabbath.” But others were saying, “How can a sinful man perform such signs? ” And there was a division among them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:17 -

Again they asked the blind man, “What do you say about him, since he opened your eyes? ”

“He’s a prophet,” he said.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:18 -

The Jews did not believe this about him ​— ​that he was blind and received sight ​— ​until they summoned the parents of the one who had received his sight.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:19 -

They asked them, “Is this your son, the one you say was born blind? How then does he now see? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:20 -

“We know this is our son and that he was born blind,” his parents answered.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:21 -

“But we don’t know how he now sees, and we don’t know who opened his eyes. Ask him; he’s of age. He will speak for himself.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:22 -

His parents said these things because they were afraid of the Jews, since the Jews had already agreed that if anyone confessed him as the Messiah, he would be banned from the synagogue.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:23 -

This is why his parents said, “He’s of age; ask him.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:24 -

So a second time they summoned the man who had been blind and told him, “Give glory to God. We know that this man is a sinner.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:25 -

He answered, “Whether or not he’s a sinner, I don’t know. One thing I do know: I was blind, and now I can see! ”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:26 -

Then they asked him, “What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:27 -

“I already told you,” he said, “and you didn’t listen. Why do you want to hear it again? You don’t want to become his disciples too, do you? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:28 -

They ridiculed him: “You’re that man’s disciple, but we’re Moses’s disciples.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:29 -

“We know that God has spoken to Moses. But this man ​— ​we don’t know where he’s from.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:30 -

“This is an amazing thing! ” the man told them. “You don’t know where he is from, and yet he opened my eyes.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:31 -

“We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, but if anyone is God-fearing and does his will, he listens to him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:32 -

“Throughout history[fn] no one has ever heard of someone opening the eyes of a person born blind.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:33 -

“If this man were not from God, he wouldn’t be able to do anything.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:34 -

“You were born entirely in sin,” they replied, “and are you trying to teach us? ” Then they threw him out.

Spiritual Blindness

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:35 -

Jesus heard that they had thrown the man out, and when he found him, he asked, “Do you believe in the Son of Man? ”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:36 -

“Who is he, Sir, that I may believe in him? ” he asked.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:37 -

Jesus answered, “You have seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:38 -

“I believe, Lord! ” he said, and he worshiped him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:39 -

Jesus said, “I came into this world for judgment, in order that those who do not see will see and those who do see will become blind.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:40 -

Some of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things and asked him, “We aren’t blind too, are we? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:41 -

“If you were blind,” Jesus told them, “you wouldn’t have sin. But now that you say, ‘We see,’ your sin remains.
