The story about a man born blind in the Gospel according to John is an example of Jesus’ care of a man. Jesus noticed a difficult situation of the blind man and gave him sight. He “spat on the ground and made mud with the salive and spread the mud on the man’s eyes, saying to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (Jn 9:6-7). The blind man performed his orders and when he came back he was able to see. He gains first his sight and then increasing insight as he progresses from referring to “the man called Jesus” whose he does not know (cf. Jn 9:11-12), to declaring him to be a prophet (cf. Jn 9:17), then one sent from God (cf. Jn 9:33), and finally confessing him as Son of Man and Lord (cf. Jn 9:37-38). The Pharisees by contrast assert that Jesus is not from God (cf. Jn 9:16) and that he is a sinner, and deny the miracle (cf. Jn 9:24). The cured man become a witness and he was talking about the miracle to those who knew him, neighbours and Pharisees. The Pharisees drove him out because he was saying that Jesus came from God. Jesus asked the cured man if he believed in the Son of Man? He answered that he did and he worshipped him. Jesus led him up to believe in the Son of Man. Jesus wants people to come to him for help and he leads them out to faith. Jesus wants us to believe in him as God who can help us.
