The Blind See (Discussion Questions)

Categories: Jesus (Healings)

John 9: 1-7

  • What was significant about Jesus healing this blind man?
  • What did Jesus do to the blind man?
  •  Why do you think he spat on the ground? (the man was blind from birth – Gen 2 suggests man born of the dust or clay – Jesus is showing man’s origin is not of the dust – so go wash off that concept of birth; also spit was considered health-producing)
  •  What happens after the man is healed?
  •  What do you think Jesus meant by the following verses? John 9:39-41 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
  • What was Jesus teaching us about blindness?
  •  Give examples of things we should see that we don’t see.
