G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible
John 9

 

 

Other Authors
Verses 1-41

The account of His healing of a blind man follows. Its values are gained very largely in relation to this spirit of opposition which was being exhibited. The case aroused great interest, so much so that the man was arraigned before the rulers, and his attitude before them aroused their anger even yet more, so that they excommunicated him. Then our Lord sought him out, revealed Himself as the Son of God, and received his worship.

Then, again, He declared that He had come into the world in order that the blind might see and those Who saw might become blind. His statement that He had come to judge the world meant that He would be the separating One, the One through whom God would judge. The position of men would be decided by their attitude toward Himself. In this teaching there was a hinting and outline of the coming order, but without any clear description of it.
