Chapter 9 is essentially a living story of just how Jesus functions as “the light of the world” (and it serves as the inspiration for one of the most famous Christian hymns, “Amazing Grace”; note verse 25, “I was blind, but now I see!”). While a blind man is literally healed here, the underlying issue is spiritual blindness, which is what Jesus came to heal in all of us. How have you experienced such blindness in your life or in the lives of others? This story is also great at encouraging us to share our faith with others to the best of our ability – even if we feel we don’t really know all that much. Look at it again with this in mind, and think through what we can learn from this man’s simple, yet bold, telling of what he has experienced as a life changed by Christ.
