John 9
6 of 41
And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
7 of 41
And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
8 of 41
Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
9 of 41
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
10 of 41
As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
11 of 41
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,
12 of 41
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.
13 of 41
The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
14 of 41
Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
15 of 41
Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
16 of 41
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.
17 of 41
Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
18 of 41
They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
19 of 41
And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
20 of 41
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.
21 of 41
Therefore 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.
22 of 41
They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
23 of 41
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 sight.
24 of 41
And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
25 of 41
His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
26 of 41
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.
27 of 41
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.
28 of 41
Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
29 of 41
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.
30 of 41
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.
31 of 41
Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
32 of 41
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?
33 of 41
Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
34 of 41
We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
35 of 41
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.
36 of 41
Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
37 of 41
Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
38 of 41
If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
39 of 41
They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
40 of 41
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?
41 of 41
He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
42 of 41
And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
43 of 41
And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
44 of 41
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 blind.
45 of 41
And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?
46 of 41
Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

  BIBLE CANON: 5
A biblical canon is a set of texts (or "books") which a particular religious community regards as authoritative scripture. Christians were the first to use the term in reference to scripture.

These bible canons have developed through debate and agreement by the religious authorities.

1. Marcion Canon | BIBLE CANON 140 AD
Marcionism was a religious movement based on the teachings of the 2nd-century Marcion of Sinope. Marcions Canon lists 14 books out of the 27 books in the New Testament. More specifically, these were Luke and Paul's 13 writings. Marcion even rejected the entire Old Testament of 39 books.

2. Muratorian Canon | BIBLE CANON 170 AD
The Muratorian Canon is an ancient list of New Testament books - the oldest such list we have found and lists 22 of the 27 books that were later included in the New Testament of the Christian Bible.

It is noteworthy that the Muratorian Canon omits several epistles that later did win acceptance in the Christian New Testament such as the books of James and 2 Peter.

4. Cheltenham/ Mommsen List | BIBLE CANON 360 AD
The Cheltenham or Mommsen List is a Latin manuscript discovered by the German classical scholar Theodor Mommsen (published 1886) which probably originated in North Africa in the 4th century.

It has 24-book Old Testament and 24-book New Testament which omits Jude and James, and perhaps Hebrews, and questions the epistles of John and Peter.

The Council of Rome was a meeting of Catholic Church officials and theologians which took place in 382 under the authority of Pope Damasus I, bishop of Rome.

According to a document appended to some manuscripts, the Council of Rome affirmed the authority of the Old and New Testament canon in a decretal or damasine list.

John 9
  TEXTUAL CRITICISM
It is impossible to think that Jesus spent his short ministry teaching in two such completely different ways, conveying such different contents, and there were simply two traditions, each going back to Jesus, one transmitting 50% of what he said and another one the other 50%, with almost no overlaps. Consequently, for the last 150 or so years scholars have had to choose.

They have almost unanimously, and I think entirely correctly, concluded that the teaching of the historical Jesus is to be sought in the synoptic gospels and that [Gospel of] John represents an advanced theological development, in which meditations on the person and work of Christ are presented in the first person, as if Jesus said them.

IMPORTANT: All Scripture text has context and background. Scripture should never be read literally or in isolation. Always seek clarification from religious scholars and teachers. In general, Scripture adheres to four principles: (1) Literal Meaning - What the Scripture says (2) Historical Setting - The story events; how the Scripture was understood in its time (3) Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context (4) Synthesis - A comparison with similar Scripture to give a better contextual understanding
