3 “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” Jesus answered. “This came about so that God’s works z might be displayed in him. 4 We a must do the works b of Him who sent Me c while it is day. d Night is coming when no one can work. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” e
6 After He said these things He spit on the ground, made some mud f from the saliva, and spread the mud on his eyes. 7 “Go,” He told him, “wash in the pool of Siloam” g (which means “Sent”). So he left, washed, and came back seeing. h
He kept saying, “I’m the one!”
“I don’t know,” he said.
13 They brought the man who used to be blind to the * Pharisees. k 14 The day that Jesus made the mud and opened his eyes was a Sabbath. l 15 So again the Pharisees asked him how he received his sight.
“He put mud on my eyes,” he told them. “I washed and I can see.”
16 Therefore some of the Pharisees said, “This man is not from God, m for He doesn’t keep the Sabbath!” But others were saying, “How can a sinful man n perform such signs?” And there was a division o among them.
17 Again they asked the blind man, p “What do you say about Him, since He opened your eyes?”
“He’s a prophet,” q he said.
18 The * Jews did not believe this about him—that he was blind and received sight—until they summoned the parents of the one who had received his sight.
20 “We know this is our son and that he was born blind,” his parents answered. 21 “But we don’t know how he now sees, and we don’t know who opened his eyes. Ask him; he’s of age. He will speak for himself.” 22 His parents said these things because they were afraid of the Jews, since the Jews had already agreed that if anyone confessed Him as * Messiah, r he would be banned from the * synagogue. 23 This is why his parents said, “He’s of age; ask him.”
30 “This is an amazing thing,” the man told them. “You don’t know where He is from, yet He opened my eyes! 31 We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, x but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, y He listens to him. z 32 Throughout history a no one has ever heard of someone opening the eyes of a person born blind. b 33 If this man were not from God, He wouldn’t be able to do anything.” c
36 “Who is He, Sir, i that I may believe in Him?” he asked.
