Description

A most unlikely hero, the man born blind in John 9 champions Jesus' cause and triumphs against overwhelming odds. Single-handedly he disputes with the Pharisees and the Jews, first as Jesus' witness and then as his surrogate disputant. Throughout the process the man navigates much like the proverbial blindfolded player in the children's game Blindman's Bluff by which he deepens in spiritual perception into Jesus' true identity. Set in the dramatic backdrop of a two-party juridical controversy between Jesus and his Jewish accusers, the man's journey to full faith lights the often treacherous path for us modern readers to traverse as our vision of Jesus clarifies. This story offers us hope that no one is too blind to be ennobled and reveal God working in our lives.
