:B:1 As Jesus walked along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. 2 His disciples asked him, Master, was he born blind because of a sin of his, or of his parents?
3 Jesus answered, Neither was it for his own sin nor for his parents. He was born blind so that Gods power might be shown in him. 4 While it is day we must do the work of the One who sent me
6 As Jesus said this, he made paste with spittle and clay and rubbed it on the eyes of the blind man. 7 Then he said, Go and wash in the Pool of Siloam. (This name means sent.) So he went and washed and came back able to see.
8 His neighbors and all the people who used to see him begging, wondered. They said, Isnt this the beg gar who used to sit here? 9 Some said, Its the one. Others said, No, but he looks like him. But the man himself said, I am the one. 10 Then they asked, How is it that your eyes were opened? 11 And he answered, The man called Jesus made a mud paste, put it on my eyes and said to me: Go to Silo am and wash. So I went, and washed, and I could see. 12 They asked, Where is he? and the man answered, I dont know.
13 The people brought the man who had been blind to the Pharisees. 14 Now it was a sabbath day when Jesus made mud paste and opened his eyes. 15 The Pharisees asked him again, How did you recover your sight? And he said, He put paste on my eyes, and I washed, and now I see. 16 Some of the Pharisees said, This man is not from God, for he works on the Sabbath
18 After all this, the Jews refused to believe that the man had been blind and had recovered his sight
22 The parents said this because they feared the Jews who had already agreed that whoever confessed Jesus to be the Christ was to be expelled. 23 Because of this his parents said, He is old enough, ask him.
24 So a second time the Pharisees called the man who had been blind, and they said to him, Tell us the truth
28 Then they started to insult him. Become his disciple yourself! We are disciples of Moses. 29 We know that God has spoken to Moses, but as for this man we dont know where he comes from.
30 The man replied, It is amazing that you dont know where the man comes from, and yet he opened my eyes! 31 We know that God doesnt listen to sinners, but if anyone honors God and does his will, God listens to him. 32 Never, since the world began, has it been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a person who was born blind. 33 If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.
34 They answered him, You were born a sinner and now you teach us! And they expelled him.
35 Jesus heard that they had expelled him. He found him and said, Do you believe in the Son of Man? 36 He answered, Who is he, that I may be lieve in him? 37 Jesus said, You have seen him and he is speaking to you. 38 He said, Lord, I believe
39 Jesus said, I came into this world to carry out a judgment: Those who do not see shall see, and those who see shall become blind. 40 Some Pharisees stood by and asked him, So we are blind? 41 And Jesus answered, If you were blind, you would not be guilty. Now you say: We see
