164:04.02 Beggar explains to SanhedrinJohn 9:13-15 (Same) "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."

164:04.03 Law violator, no teacher from God John 9:16a (Same) "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."

164:04.04 He (Jesus) is a prophet. John 9:17 (Same) "They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes?
He said, He is a prophet."

164:04.04 Serious division in Sanhedrin John 9:16b (Same) "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."

164:04.05 Sanhedrin send for parents John 9:18 (Same) "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."

164:04.07 Parents' response John 9:19-23 (Same) "And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: 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.
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."

164:04.08 Recall of "blind" beggar John 9:24 (Same) "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."

164:04.09 How did he open eyes? John 9:25-26 (Same) "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.
Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?"

164:04.10 Sanhedrin in confusion John 9:27-29 (Same) "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?
Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is."

164:04.11 "Blind" man's speech John 9:30-33 (Same) "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.
Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
If this man were not of God, he could do nothing."

164:04.11 Cast out of synagogue John 9:34 (Same) "They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us?
And they cast him out."
