Healing the Man Born Blind
1As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. 2And His disciples asked Him, Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind? 3Jesus answered, It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him. 4We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work. 5While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world. 6When He had said this, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and applied the clay to his eyes, 7and said to him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is translated, Sent). So he went away and washed, and came back seeing. 8Therefore the neighbors, and those who previously saw him as a beggar, were saying, Is not this the one who used to sit and beg? 9Others were saying, This is he, still others were saying, No, but he is like him. He kept saying, I am the one. 10So they were saying to him, How then were your eyes opened? 11He answered, The man who is called Jesus made clay, and anointed my eyes, and said to me, Go to Siloam and wash; so I went away and washed, and I received sight. 12They said to him, Where is He? He said, I do not know.
18The Jews then did not believe it of him, that he had been blind and had received sight, until they called the parents of the very one who had received his sight, 19and questioned them, saying, Is this your son, who you say was born blind? Then how does he now see? 20His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind; 21but how he now sees, we do not know; or who opened his eyes, we do not know. Ask him; he is of age, he will speak for himself. 22His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that if anyone confessed Him to be Christ, he was to be put out of the synagogue. 23For this reason his parents said, He is of age; ask him.
24So a second time they called the man who had been blind, and said to him, Give glory to God; we know that this man is a sinner. 25He then answered, Whether He is a sinner, I do not know; one thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see. 26So they said to him, What did He do to you? How did He open your eyes? 27He answered them, I told you already and you did not listen; why do you want to hear it again? You do not want to become His disciples too, do you? 28They reviled him and said, You are His disciple, but we are disciples of Moses. 29We know that God has spoken to Moses, but as for this man, we do not know where He is from. 30The man answered and said to them, Well, here is an amazing thing, that you do not know where He is from, and yet He opened my eyes. 31We know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him. 32Since the beginning of time it has never been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a person born blind. 33If this man were not from God, He could do nothing. 34They answered him, You were born entirely in sins, and are you teaching us? So they put him out.
