Writing today from Burns, Oregon.
One of the signs of the coming Messiah was He would open the eyes of the blind (Isaiah 35:5). Messiah Jesus performed this miracle on a man born blind at the recently discovered (ca. 2004) Pool of Siloam. Only the Messiah could do such a thing (John 9:32). When the man believed, he worshipped.
Notice the confusion concerning Jesus (John 10:19-21)
- Some say he is “mad” (i.e. insane).
- Some say he “hath a devil.”
- Some question “Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?”
Rather, Jesus is the good shepherd who will “lay down [his] life for the sheep.”
Read John 9:1 – 10:21
