The Healing of the Blind Man

Chapter Nine focuses on the reaction to the healing and the subsequent discussion over Jesus’ authority, identity, and origin. The Pharisees were indignant that Jesus healed on the Sabbath and accused Him of violating the Law. Therefore, He cannot be from God. Others responded by saying, “How could such a notable healing take place through someone who was not sent from God?” The testimony of the healed man is central to the spiritual insight of the chapter.
