1 As he went along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth.
2 His disciples asked him, 'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he should have been born blind?'
Luke 13:2 John 9:34 Acts 28:4 Exod 20:5 Matt 16:14 Matt 23:7
3 'Neither he nor his parents sinned,' Jesus answered, 'he was born blind so that the works of God might be revealed in him.
John 11:4 Job 42:7 Job 2:3-6 Job 22:5-30 Acts 28:4 Eccl 9:1-2 Job 1:8-12
4 'As long as day lasts we must carry out the work of the one who sent me; the night will soon be here when no one can work.
John 12:35 Eph 5:16 Eccl 9:10 Gal 6:10 John 4:34 Col 4:5 John 11:9-10
5 As long as I am in the world I am the light of the world.'
John 8:12 John 12:46 Acts 26:18 John 1:4-9 Acts 13:47 Eph 5:14 Isa 42:6-7
6 Having said this, he spat on the ground, made a paste with the spittle, put this over the eyes of the blind man,
Mark 7:33 Mark 8:23 Rev 3:18
7 and said to him, 'Go and wash in the Pool of Siloam' (the name means 'one who has been sent'). So he went off and washed and came back able to see.
Isa 35:5 John 11:37 Acts 26:18 Isa 8:6 John 9:11 Neh 3:15 Isa 42:7
8 His neighbours and the people who used to see him before (for he was a beggar) said, 'Isn't this the man who used to sit and beg?'
1Sam 2:8 Luke 18:35 1Sam 21:11 Luke 16:20-22 Mark 10:46 Acts 3:2-11 Ruth 1:19
9 Some said, 'Yes, it is the same one.' Others said, 'No, but he looks just like him.' The man himself said, 'Yes, I am the one.'
10 So they said to him, 'Then how is it that your eyes were opened?'
1Cor 15:35 Eccl 11:5 John 3:9 John 9:15 John 9:21 John 9:26 Mark 4:27
11 He answered, 'The man called Jesus made a paste, daubed my eyes with it and said to me, "Go off and wash at Siloam"; so I went, and when I washed I gained my sight.'
John 9:6-7 Jer 36:17 John 9:27
12 They asked, 'Where is he?' He answered, 'I don't know.'
Exod 2:18-20 John 5:11-13 John 7:11
13 They brought to the Pharisees the man who had been blind.
John 8:3-8 John 11:46-47 John 11:57 John 12:42 John 12:19
14 It had been a Sabbath day when Jesus made the paste and opened the man's eyes,
John 5:9 John 5:16 John 7:21-23 Luke 6:1-11 Luke 13:10-17 Luke 14:1 Mark 2:23-6
15 so when the Pharisees asked him how he had gained his sight, he said, 'He put a paste on my eyes, and I washed, and I can see.'
John 9:10-11 John 9:26-27
16 Then some of the Pharisees said, 'That man cannot be from God: he does not keep the Sabbath.' Others said, 'How can a sinner produce signs like this?' And there was division among them.
John 7:43 John 10:19 John 3:2 John 7:12 Matt 12:2 Acts 14:4 John 5:36
17 So they spoke to the blind man again, 'What have you to say about him yourself, now that he has opened your eyes?' The man answered, 'He is a prophet.'
John 4:19 John 6:14 Acts 2:22 Acts 3:22-26 Acts 10:38 Luke 24:19 Matt 21:11
18 However, the Jews would not believe that the man had been blind without first sending for the parents of the man who had gained his sight and
Gen 19:14 Heb 3:15-19 Heb 4:11 Isa 26:11 Isa 53:1 John 1:19 John 5:44
19 asking them, 'Is this man really the son of yours who you say was born blind? If so, how is it that he is now able to see?'
Acts 3:10 Acts 4:14 John 9:8-9
20 His parents answered, 'We know he is our son and we know he was born blind,
21 but how he can see, we don't know, nor who opened his eyes. Ask him. He is old enough: let him speak for himself.'
22 His parents spoke like this out of fear of the Jews, who had already agreed to ban from the synagogue anyone who should acknowledge Jesus as the Christ.
John 7:13 John 16:2 Luke 6:22 John 9:34 Acts 4:18 Acts 5:13 Acts 5:40
23 This was why his parents said, 'He is old enough; ask him.'
24 So the Jews sent for the man again and said to him, 'Give glory to God! We are satisfied that this man is a sinner.'
John 9:16 Josh 7:19 1Sam 6:5-9 2Cor 5:21 Isa 66:5 John 5:23 John 8:46
25 The man answered, 'Whether he is a sinner I don't know; all I know is that I was blind and now I can see.'
1John 5:10 John 5:11 John 9:30
26 They said to him, 'What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?'
27 He replied, 'I have told you once and you wouldn't listen. Why do you want to hear it all again? Do you want to become his disciples yourselves?'
John 9:10-15 Luke 22:67
28 At this they hurled abuse at him, 'It is you who are his disciple, we are disciples of Moses:
Rom 2:17 1Cor 4:12 1Cor 6:10 1Pet 2:23 Acts 6:11-14 Isa 51:7 John 5:45-47
29 we know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this man, we don't know where he comes from.'
John 8:14 1Kgs 22:27 2Kgs 9:11 Acts 7:35 Acts 22:22 Acts 26:22 Deut 34:10
30 The man replied, 'That is just what is so amazing! You don't know where he comes from and he has opened my eyes!
John 12:37 John 3:10 2Cor 4:6 Isa 29:14 Isa 29:18 Isa 35:5 Luke 7:22
31 We know that God doesn't listen to sinners, but God does listen to people who are devout and do his will.
Prov 15:29 Prov 28:9 Isa 1:15 Mic 3:4 Ps 145:19 Zech 7:13 Prov 1:28-29
32 Ever since the world began it is unheard of for anyone to open the eyes of someone born blind;
Isa 64:4 Job 20:4 Luke 1:70 Rev 16:18
33 if this man were not from God, he wouldn't have been able to do anything.'
John 9:16 John 3:2 Acts 5:38-39
34 They retorted, 'Are you trying to teach us, and you a sinner through and through ever since you were born!' And they ejected him.
John 9:2 John 9:22 Isa 66:5 Job 25:4 Luke 18:17 Ps 51:5 3John 1:9
35 Jesus heard they had ejected him, and when he found him he said to him, 'Do you believe in the Son of man?'
1John 5:13 John 10:36 John 20:31 1John 4:15 1John 5:5 1John 5:10 1John 5:20
36 'Sir,' the man replied, 'tell me who he is so that I may believe in him.'
Rom 10:14 John 1:38 Matt 11:3 Prov 30:3-4 Song 5:9
37 Jesus said, 'You have seen him; he is speaking to you.'
John 4:26 Acts 10:31-33 John 7:17 John 14:21-23 Matt 11:25 Matt 13:11-12 Ps 25:8-9
38 The man said, 'Lord, I believe,' and worshipped him.
Matt 14:33 Matt 28:9 John 20:28 Luke 24:52 Matt 28:17 Ps 2:12 Ps 45:11
39 Jesus said: It is for judgement that I have come into this world, so that those without sight may see and those with sight may become blind.
John 3:19 Acts 26:18 John 8:12 John 12:46 Luke 4:18 1John 2:11 2Cor 2:16
40 Hearing this, some Pharisees who were present said to him, 'So we are blind, are we?'
Matt 15:12-14 Rev 3:17 John 7:47-52 John 9:34 Luke 11:39-54 Matt 23:16-28 Rom 2:19-22
41 Jesus replied: If you were blind, you would not be guilty, but since you say, 'We can see,' your guilt remains.
