Tools specific to Jhn 9:3

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:3

“It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:4

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:4

We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us.[fn] The night is coming, and then no one can work.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:5

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:5

But while I am here in the world, I am the light of the world.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:6

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:6

Then he spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and spread the mud over the blind man’s eyes.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:7

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:7

He told him, “Go wash yourself in the pool of Siloam” (Siloam means “sent”). So the man went and washed and came back seeing!

Tools specific to Jhn 9:8

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:8

His neighbors and others who knew him as a blind beggar asked each other, “Isn’t this the man who used to sit and beg?”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:9

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:9

Some said he was, and others said, “No, he just looks like him!” But the beggar kept saying, “Yes, I am the same one!”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:10

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:10

They asked, “Who healed you? What happened?”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:11

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:11

He told them, “The man they call Jesus made mud and spread it over my eyes and told me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam and wash yourself.’ So I went and washed, and now I can see!”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:12

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:12

“Where is he now?” they asked. “I don’t know,” he replied.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:13

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:13

Then they took the man who had been blind to the Pharisees,

Tools specific to Jhn 9:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:14

because it was on the Sabbath that Jesus had made the mud and healed him.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:15

The Pharisees asked the man all about it. So he told them, “He put the mud over my eyes, and when I washed it away, I could see!”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:16

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:16

Some of the Pharisees said, “This man Jesus is not from God, for he is working on the Sabbath.” Others said, “But how could an ordinary sinner do such miraculous signs?” So there was a deep division of opinion among them.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:17

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:17

Then the Pharisees again questioned the man who had been blind and demanded, “What’s your opinion about this man who healed you?” The man replied, “I think he must be a prophet.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:18

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:18

The Jewish leaders still refused to believe the man had been blind and could now see, so they called in his parents.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:19

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:19

They asked them, “Is this your son? Was he born blind? If so, how can he now see?”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:20

His parents replied, “We know this is our son and that he was born blind,

Tools specific to Jhn 9:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:21

but we don’t know how he can see or who healed him. Ask him. He is old enough to speak for himself.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:22

His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders, who had announced that anyone saying Jesus was the Messiah would be expelled from the synagogue.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:23

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:23

That’s why they said, “He is old enough. Ask him.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:24

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:24

So for the second time they called in the man who had been blind and told him, “God should get the glory for this,[fn] because we know this man Jesus is a sinner.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:25

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:25

“I don’t know whether he is a sinner,” the man replied. “But I know this: I was blind, and now I can see!”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:26

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:26

“But what did he do?” they asked. “How did he heal you?”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:27

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:27

“Look!” the man exclaimed. “I told you once. Didn’t you listen? Why do you want to hear it again? Do you want to become his disciples, too?”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:28

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:28

Then they cursed him and said, “You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Moses!

Tools specific to Jhn 9:29

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:29

We know God spoke to Moses, but we don’t even know where this man comes from.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:30

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:30

“Why, that’s very strange!” the man replied. “He healed my eyes, and yet you don’t know where he comes from?

Tools specific to Jhn 9:31

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:31

We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, but he is ready to hear those who worship him and do his will.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:32

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:32

Ever since the world began, no one has been able to open the eyes of someone born blind.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:33

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:33

If this man were not from God, he couldn’t have done it.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:34

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:34

“You were born a total sinner!” they answered. “Are you trying to teach us?” And they threw him out of the synagogue.

Tools specific to Jhn 9:35

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:35

When Jesus heard what had happened, he found the man and asked, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 9:36

“You have seen him,” Jesus said, “and he is speaking to you!”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:38

Tools specific to Jhn 9:39

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:39

Then Jesus told him,[fn] “I entered this world to render judgment—to give sight to the blind and to show those who think they see[fn] that they are blind.”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:40

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:40

Some Pharisees who were standing nearby heard him and asked, “Are you saying we’re blind?”

Tools specific to Jhn 9:41

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 9:41

“If you were blind, you wouldn’t be guilty,” Jesus replied. “But you remain guilty because you claim you can see.
