What a great story recorded in this scripture.
Jesus is walking with disciples and they pass by a man born blind. Born. Blind. Jesus does something that is weird to us: he makes mud with some of his spit. Saliva and dust were then placed on the blind man's eyes. From there, Jesus tells the man to go wash in the pool of Siloam.
He does, and people notice.
His neighbors wonder if it is the same guy, they ask him what happened, and they go the religious leaders, tell them about him, and bring the man to them. The leaders also question the once-blind man as to how he received his sight. He tells them about Jesus and his instructions. Dumbfounded and proud, they ask him again.
Not satisfied, they bring in the man's parents who basically say, "We don't want any trouble. Let him answer for himself." (Thanks mom. Thanks dad.)
AGAIN the religious leaders ask him about the incident and about Jesus. They say, "We know this man is a sinner."
The Once-blind man says back,
“Whether he is a sinner I do not know. One thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.”
(And THAT, my friends, is how you talk about your faith to others.)
The passage continues with more dialogue, but comes back to Jesus, who turned the world upside down. Jesus says,
“For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and those who see may become blind.”
