Would it be possible to cure the man's blindness?

Was the man blind because of his sin or his parents' sin?

Why does God allow disease and suffering?

Would they be given the power to heal the blind?

2) How did Jesus cure the man of his blindness?

He laid His hand on the man's head and prayed for his sight to be restored.

He spat on the ground, made some mud, and rubbed it on the man's eyes.

He put mud from the Pool of Siloam on his eyes.

He told the man to rise, open his eyes, and see.

3) Soon his neighbors found out that this man who had been blind since birth could now see. They took him to the Pharisees to see what they had to say about this miracle Jesus had performed. However, the Pharisees concluded that Jesus was a sinner, and not a man from God. Why?

Jesus healed the man on the Sabbath.

Jesus did not wash his hands before performing miracles.

They believed only demons performed miracles.

They did not believe anyone from Bethlehem could be the Messiah.

4) Sometime later Jesus heard of the Pharisees' reaction to His healing of the blind man and said to some of them, "If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains." (NIV) What did Jesus mean by that remark?

Blindness is not caused by one's sin.

The Pharisees were guilty of sin because they did not allow blind persons into the synagogue.

The Pharisees were guilty of sin because they had heard the truth Jesus spoke, but did not believe.

Those who are "blind" to their own sin will never enter the kingdom of God.
