Jesus Heals a Blind Man


Chapter 34
A blind man

One day while Jesus was walking with His disciples, they saw a man who had been blind from birth. The disciples asked if he was blind because he had sinned or because his parents had sinned. John 9:1–2

Sin didn't cause the blindness

The Savior said that neither the man nor his parents had sinned, that the man was blind so that Jesus could heal him. Then people could see God’s power. John 9:3–5

Jesus put mud on the eyes of the man

Jesus made mud out of the dirt and put it on the blind man’s eyes. Then He told the man to wash his eyes. John 9:6–7

The man could see

As soon as the man washed the mud from his eyes, he could see! John 9:7

He told others Jesus had healed him

When his friends saw him, they thought that he was someone else. He told them that a man called Jesus had healed him. John 9:8–11

Pharisees were angry

The friends took the man to the Pharisees. The Pharisees asked him how he had been healed. When he told them, they were angry and told him to go away. John 9:13–16, 28–34

The blind man worshipped Jesus

Jesus found the man and asked him if he believed on the Son of God. The man asked who the Son of God was so he could believe in Him. Jesus said that it was He Himself, and the man worshiped Him. John 9:35–38
