As Jesus was walking through Jerusalem he saw a man who had been born blind. His disciples asked, ‘Teacher, is this man blind because he did wrong or was it that his parents did wrong? ‘His blindness is not because of his sin or his parents,’ Jesus replied. – Slide 1
‘I am here to do what God wants,’ Jesus continued. ‘I am the light of the world.’ Then, Jesus spat on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes. ‘Go,’ Jesus told him, ‘wash in the Pool of Siloam.’ The man felt his way through the narrow streets to the pool. – Slide 2
When he washed the mud from his eyes - he could see for the first time in his life. – Slide 3
His neighbours and friends 04 asked, ‘Isn’t this the man who used to sit and beg?’ Doubters said, ‘No, he only looks like him.’ ‘It’s me!’ the man exclaimed and explained what had happened. ‘Where is the person who healed you?’ they asked. The man did not know. – Slide 4
They took the man to some Pharisees who asked what had happened. ‘He put mud on my eyes,’ the man replied, ‘I washed it off and now I can see!’ When the Pharisees realised the miracle had taken place on the Sabbath some thought this miracle could not be from God but others insisted it had to be. – Slide 5
They sent for the man’s parents. ‘Is this your son, the one you say was born blind? How is it that now he can see?’ ‘He is our son,’ the parents answered, ‘and we know he was born blind. But we don’t know how he can now see. Why don’t you ask him?’ – Slide 6
The Pharisees summoned the man again. ‘Tell the truth,’ they ordered. ‘We know the man who did this is a sinner.’ ‘I don’t know whether he is a sinner,’ he replied. ‘But I do know I was blind but now I can see!’ ‘How did he open your eyes?’ they demanded. – Slide 7
‘I have already told you,’ the man told them. ‘Do you want to become His disciples too?’ The Pharisees hurled insults at him. The man protested. ‘If the man who did this was not from God, he could not have healed me.’ ‘How dare you lecture us,’ the proud Pharisees retorted. ‘You were full of sin from birth.’ Then they threw him out. – Slide 8
When Jesus heard the man had been thrown out he went looking for him. ‘Do you believe in the Son of Man?’ Jesus asked. ‘Who is he, sir?’ the man asked. ‘Tell me so that I may believe in him.’ ‘You can see him now,’ Jesus replied. ‘In fact, he is the one speaking with you.’ – Slide 9
‘Lord, I believe,’ the man said and worshiped Jesus. – Slide 10
