Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:3 - Yeshua answered, "Neither did this man sin, nor his parents; but, that the works of God might be revealed in him.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:4 - I must work the works of him who sent me, while it is day. The night is coming, when no one can work.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:7 - and said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Shiloach" (which means "Sent"). So he went away, washed, and came back seeing.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:19 - and asked them, "Is this your son, who you say was born blind? How then does he now see?"
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:20 - His parents answered them, "We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind;
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:21 - but how he now sees, we don't know; or who opened his eyes, we don't know. He is of age. Ask him. He will speak for himself."
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:22 - His parents said these things because they feared the Yehudim; for the Yehudim had already agreed that if any man would confess him as Messiah, he would be put out of the synagogue.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:26 - They said to him again, "What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?"
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:27 - He answered them, "I told you already, and you didn't listen. Why do you want to hear it again? You don't also want to become his talmidim, do you?"
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:28 - They insulted him and said, "You are his talmid, but we are talmidim of Moshe.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:29 - We know that God has spoken to Moshe. But as for this man, we don't know where he comes from."
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 9:30 - The man answered them, "How amazing! You don't know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes.
