Man Born Blind

Category: Bible


According to the Gospel of John, 9:1–12, Jesus saw a man who had been blind since birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”

Jesus spat on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes. Like the Lord God who formed Adam from the dust of the earth, Jesus makes clay and creates a new man. “Go,” he told him, “wash in the Pool of Siloam” (this word means “Sent”). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing. According to Christian tradition, the man’s name was Celidonius.

In this miracle, Jesus applies the title Light of the World to himself in John 9:5, saying: “When I am in the world, I am the Light of the World.”
