John: Giving Blindness to the Seeing

John 9:8-41

Most of us are probably fairly familiar with the way that Jesus healed the man born blind. This fits with what we know about our Lord–His heart of compassion and His power to reverse the effects of the curse. But as we’ll see in John 9:8-41, when Jesus had healed the blind man, He said of Himself that He had come into the world not only “that those who do not see may see,” but also that “those who see may become blind.” What could Jesus possibly mean by that second statement? Join us as we explore this potentially confusing statement of Christ, the one who not only gave sight to the blind but gave blindness to the seeing.
