Sunday November 29, 2020 | Jesus Healed a Man Who Was Blind

Our sin makes us unable to see the truth about God. Jesus came as a light in a dark world. He came to give us sight—true understanding of God and His kingdom. Those who trust in Jesus see who He is and worship Him.

This Week’s Lesson – Jesus Healed a Man Who Was Blind

  • Session Title: Jesus Healed a Man Who Was Blind
  • Bible Passage: John 9
  • Story Point: Jesus gave sight to a man who was blind.
  • Key Passage: Isaiah 53:4-5
  • Big Picture Question: Why did God create people? God created people to worship Him, love Him, and show His glory.

Jesus was walking with His disciples when He saw a man who had been born blind. The disciples asked, “Teacher, why was this man born blind? Did this happen because of his sin or his parents’ sin?” Jesus answered, “Neither his sin nor his parents’ sin caused this. This man was born blind so that people could see God’s power through him.” Jesus would be on earth for a short time so He healed people to show what God is like. Jesus said, “While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.”

Then Jesus spit on the ground and made mud. He put the mud on the eyes of the man who was blind. “Go and wash in the pool of Siloam,” Jesus instructed. The man went and washed. When he came back, he could see. The man’s neighbors were amazed. They took the man to the religious leaders, and they asked him how he was healed. “A man put mud on my eyes. I washed, and now I can see,” he said.

The religious leaders were upset because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath again. They did not want to believe that Jesus could give sight to people who were blind. Over and over again, the man who was healed told the religious leaders what happened. The man believed Jesus must have come from God. But the religious leaders threw the man out of the synagogue. Jesus came to the man again and asked, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” The man answered, “Tell me who He is so I can believe in Him.” “You have already seen Him,” Jesus replied. “The Son of Man is talking to you now.” The man said, “I believe, Lord!” and he worshiped Jesus.
