In this chapter Jesus heals a man born blind. The man is eventually drawn to worship Jesus. This healing simultaneously exposes the blindness of the religious leaders.

Palmer St. Podcast: John 9


This chapter begins with a man who was blind from birth.  The disciples, displaying little or no insight, ask, “Who sinned this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”  Jesus responds by declaring Himself to be the Light of the World, and healing the blind man.

It’s difficult to argue with a man just healed from a lifetime of blindness, but that’s exactly what the Pharisees try to do as they confront him about his healing.  The chapter ends with the Pharisees rejecting Jesus and the formerly blind man worshiping Him.
