Jesus heals a blind man
Can you list the seven “I am” sayings from John’s Gospel? (Eg “I am the Light of the World” from this passage.)
Where else do you remember the phrase “I am” from in the bible? (Hint: early in Exodus)
What do you think John is trying to communicate by using this phrase? How does this passage help that goal?
How is Jesus using the images of light and dark? Describe how the man was in the dark then in the light? (Literally and metaphorically/spiritually) Compare and contrast with the Pharisees?
What do you think was blinding the Pharisees? Have you ever been blind to the work of God? What opened your eyes? How can we help open the eyes of the spiritually blind today?
