Seeing Without Perceiving
When and where do the events in this chapter take place?
Jesus' answer to the disciples' question in verse 2 is very revealing
for a number of reasons. How does this help us to understand
"sicknesses" today. Cf. Isaiah passages above and the story
Do you think the man's parents knew the source of his healing? Why or
why not? What would have been the significance had they acknowledged
The man's "lecture" to the Pharisees in verses 30ff appears to
somehow "miss the mark" and fails to convince the Pharisees.
Indeed it was not until verse 38 that the man himself really acknowledge
who Jesus was. What has happened to change his belief?
Jesus' words in verse 39 are sobering. Discuss these in light of the
passage in Isaiah 6.
Does the world around you tend to keep you in spiritual darkness? How?
What do you think limits God's ability to display His glory in your life
