The sermon text is John 9:1-41 vis another long one. The part that has always intrigued me the most – other than the sheer wonder of the miracle of giving a man his sight – is the formerly blind man’s defence of Jesus to the authorities. The authorities are jealous and anxious about Jesus. They have the peace to guard, and their way of life and privilege in society. This man simply tells them the way it is. Only God is able to do such a wonder. In what ways could you be clearer and simpler about who Jesus is?
