"And as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from his birth.  And His disciples asked Him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?  Jesus answered, Not because of this man's sins, nor those of his parents:  but that the works of God should be made manifest in him." (v. 1-3)

"When He had finished speaking, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, 'Sent').  He went his way therefore, and washed, and could see.  The neighbors therefore, and they which before had seen that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?  Some said, This is he:  others said, He is like him:  but he said, yes I am.  Therefore they said unto him, How were your eyes opened?  He answered and said, A MAN Who is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight." (v. 6-11)

"Then they said unto the blind man again, What do you say of Him, that He has opened your eyes? He said, He is A PROPHET." (v. 17)

"And they asked his parents, saying, Is this your son, who you say was born blind?  How then does he now see?  His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:  but by what means he now sees, we know not; or who has opened his eyes, we know not:  he is of age; ask him:  he shall speak for himself.  [His parents feared the Jews:  for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that Jesus was THE CHRIST, he should be put out of the synagogue.] Therefore his parents said, He is of age; ask him. (v. 19-23)

"Then they asked him again, What did He to do to thee?  How did He open your eyes?  He answered them, I have told you already, and you did not listen:  wherefore would you want to hear it again?  Will ye also become His disciples? - - - When Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said unto him, Do you believe on THE SON OF GOD?  He answered and said, Who is He, LORD, that I might believe In him?  And Jesus said unto him, You have both seen Him, and it is He Who is talking to you.  And he said, LORD, I believe.  AND HE WORSHIPPED HIM." (v.26-27; 35-38)  [All Scripture is from the "Skip's Lighthouse Version]
