Clearer View Of Jesus Christ

John 9:13-15 (NASB)
13  They *brought to the Pharisees the man who was formerly blind.
14  Now it was a Sabbath on the day when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes.
15  Then the Pharisees also were asking him again how he received his sight. And he said to them, "He applied clay to my eyes, and I washed, and I see."

  1. Seeing Jesus As Healer

John 9:13-15 (NASB)
13  They *brought to the Pharisees the man who was formerly blind.
14  Now it was a Sabbath on the day when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes.
15  Then the Pharisees also were asking him again how he received his sight. And he said to them, "He applied clay to my eyes, and I washed, and I see."

  1. Seeing Jesus As Prophet

John 9:16-17 (NASB)
16  Therefore some of the Pharisees were saying, "This man is not from God, because He does not keep the Sabbath." But others were saying, "How can a man who is a sinner perform such signs?" And there was a division among them.
17  So they *said to the blind man again, "What do you say about Him, since He opened your eyes?" And he said, "He is a prophet."

  1. Seeing Jesus As Christ Changes Everything

John 9:18-27 (NASB)
18  The 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,
19  and questioned them, saying, "Is this your son, who you say was born blind? Then how does he now see?"
20  His parents answered them and said, "We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind;
21  but 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."
22  His 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.
23  For this reason his parents said, "He is of age; ask him."
24  So 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."
25  He then answered, "Whether He is a sinner, I do not know; one thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see."
26  So they said to him, "What did He do to you? How did He open your eyes?"
27  He 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?"
