Great Chapters In The Life of Jesus: The Man Born Blind

Today’s lesson is found in John 9

The chapter begins with a discussion of why the man was born blind. What does Jesus say was NOT the reason? (Verse 2, see also John 9:34)

In verse 3-5 Jesus gives a reason for the blindness. What is it? What does this mean? For help with this one look also at John 20:30-31.

What method does Jesus use to heal the blind man? Why do you think He performed the miracle in this method?
