GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
ACCORDING TO JOHN
Van Nattan's questions are in blue and are NOT inspired and final. You do not
have to agree with Steve. Also, if you do not understand something you are reading,
do not stop and dwell on it too long. Just keep reading and deal with what you
9:1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which 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?
3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor
his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when
no man can work.
5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle,
and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
7 And said unto him,
Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his
way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
8 The neighbours therefore, and
they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat
9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said,
I am he.
10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
He answered and said, A man that 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.
12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I
13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said
unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.
said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the
sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And
there was a division among them.
17 They say unto the blind man again, What
sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and
received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his
19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born
blind? how then doth he now see?
20 His parents answered them and said, We
know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
21 But by what means
he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of
age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
22 These words spake his parents,
because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man
did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
24 Then again called they
the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this
man is a sinner.
25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I
know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would
ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?
28 Then they reviled him,
and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
29 We know that
God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye
know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.
31 Now we know
that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth
his will, him he heareth.
32 Since the world began was it not heard that any
man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
33 If this man were not of
God, he could do nothing.
34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether
born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard
that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost
thou believe on the Son of God?
36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord,
that I might believe on him?
37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen
him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
38 And he said, Lord, I believe.
And he worshipped him.
39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this
world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made
40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words,
and said unto him, Are we blind also?
41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were
blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
the key verse of John:
20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ,
Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
to help you decide if you believe the Gospel in John Chapter Nine
all the verses in this chapter-- Will you trust only Jesus and worship him, or
do you also insist on trusting in traditions men have invented? From the Pope
to the Mormons to the Baptists, all churches today have traditions which they
have added to the Gospel. These traditions are wicked, for they distract us from
the simple truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Are you ready to reject and leave
any religious traditions which you cannot find in the Bible?
you give up anything not in the Bible so that you can walk with Jesus Christ in
the plain and simple life he gives you?
up to this chapter, how these Pharisees, the mighty religious leaders of Israel,
hated Jesus and his works. Notice how they attacked the man in this chapter whom
Jesus had healed. Also, notice how that man lost all his fear of these treacherous
Pharisees. Will you speak, from now on, with blunt and plain speech in defense
of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the King James Bible?
a word, will you kick the habit of submitting to religious impostors who stand
between you and Jesus?
