Slide 1

Jesus has healed many people. His ministry brings Him to Jerusalem the capital of Israel. Jerusalem is controlled by the Romans. John tells us the story of one healing and the outrage it caused religious Jews. – Slide 1

Slide 2

Jesus and some of His disciples approached a man born blind. The disciples asked Jesus if he or his parents’ sin caused this problem. It is not uncommon to blame a person’s hardship on sin. – Slide 2

Slide 3

Jesus told the disciples, ‘It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him.’ – Slide 3

Slide 4

The blind man lived all his life in darkness. He had no idea what light looked like. He likely heard Jesus say, ‘While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world’ (Refer to 1 John 1:5). – Slide 4

Slide 5

Jesus prepared to heal the blind man. He spat on the ground and made clay. Then He applied the clay to the blind man’s eyes. Lastly Jesus told the man to go wash in the pool of Siloam. – Slide 5

Slide 6

Jesus spoke with authority. The blind man listened and was compelled with child-like faith to do as Jesus commanded. He may have looked silly to others as he obeyed Jesus but that did not matter. He had hope for healing. – Slide 6

Slide 7

He washed in the pool of Siloam, was healed and could see. Not even his friends, who knew him as a beggar, could believe that it was the same man. He kept trying to convince them that he was once blind. – Slide 7

Slide 8

The healed man told them how Jesus made clay, put it on his eyes and told him to go to Siloam and wash. He did as Jesus told him and was healed. So they asked him, ‘Where is He? And he replied, ‘I do not know.’ – Slide 8

Slide 9

News of the healing spread throughout all Jerusalem. Jesus got attention. The Pharisees were jealous and angry because Jesus healed on the Sabbath. So they brought the once blind man to the synagogue. – Slide 9

Slide 10

The Pharisees asked the healed man what he thought of Jesus. He said, ‘He is a prophet.’ But some Pharisees thought Jesus was a sinner because He healed on the Sabbath, so He could not be from God. – Slide 10

Slide 11

Next the Pharisees questioned his parents. They were frightened of the Pharisees because they knew if they praised Jesus they would be thrown out of the synagogue. So they only admitted that their son was born blind. – Slide 11

Slide 12

A second time they questioned the healed man. He told them ‘Whether He is a sinner, I do not know; one thing I do know; that though I was blind, and now I see. If this man were not from God, He could do nothing.’ – Slide 12

Slide 13

The Pharisees were outraged. They told the blind man that he was a follower of a sinner but they were followers of Moses. Then they threw him out of the synagogue because he too was a sinner. – Slide 13

Slide 14

Jesus found the dejected blind man. Jesus introduced Himself as the Messiah, the Son of God. In great joy the man believed in Jesus and worshiped Him. – Slide 14

Slide 15

Jesus then said to the Pharisees; ‘For judgment I came into this world, so that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may become blind.’ – Slide 15
