I Was Blind, But Now I See

Portraits John Painted

The Pharisees' rejection of Jesus renders them blind. The healed man’s testimony is simple and irrefutable: ‘Once I was blind, but now I see.’ His courage grows as he realizes that petulance and pride are behind all the questions being put to him. Finally the formerly blind man gets to meet Jesus leading to grateful worship

Scripture References: John 9:8-41

From Series: "Portraits John Painted"

John's gospel differs from the other three. He records fewer incidents, includes no parables, and has only brief reference to Jesus' ministry in Galilee. However, the stories John does tell of Jesus' encounters with those in need, those he loves, and even those who are his enemies are usually richer in detail and often reflect on what an event means in addition to matters of fact. John's record of his memories of Jesus has been called, "the intimate gospel." This sermon series will consider portraits of Jesus, painted by 'one whom Jesus loved,' that are found in the first nine chapters of the Gospel of John.
