Sermon text: John 9:1-7, 13-17, 34-39
As Jesus was passing by, he saw a man blind from birth. 2His disci-ples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”
3Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that God’s works might be revealed in connection with him. 4I must do the works of him who sent me while it is day. Night is coming when no one can work. 5As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the World.”
6After saying this, Jesus spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and spread the mud on the man’s eyes. 7“Go,” Jesus told him, “wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means “Sent”). So he went and washed, and came back seeing.
13They brought this man who had been blind to the Pharisees. 14Now it was a Sabbath day when Jesus made the mud and opened his eyes. 15So the Pharisees also asked him how he received his sight.
“He put mud on my eyes,” the man told them. “I washed, and now I see.”
16Then some of the Pharisees said, “This man is not from God be-cause he does not keep the Sabbath.” Others were saying, “How can a sinful man work such miraculous signs?”
There was division among them, 17so they said to the blind man again, “What do you say about him, because he opened your eyes?” The man re-plied, “He is a prophet.”
34They answered him, “You were entirely born in sinfulness! Yet you presume to teach us?” And they threw him out. 35Jesus heard that they had thrown him out. When he found him, he asked,
“Do you believe in the Son of God?” 36“Who is he, sir,” the man replied, “that I may believe in him?”
37Jesus answered, “You have seen him, and he is the very one who is speaking with you.” 38Then he said, “Lord, I believe!” and he knelt down and worshipped him. 39Jesus said, “For judgment I came into this world, in order that those who do not see will see, and those who do see will become blind.”
