    SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:1

    ¶ Y pasando Jess, vio un hombre ciego desde su nacimiento.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 9:1

    Verse 1. And as
    Jesus passed by] This chapter is a continuation of the preceding, and therefore the word Jesus is not in the Greek text: it begins simply thus-And passing along, kai paragwn, &c. Having left the temple, where the Jews were going to stone him, (chap. viii. 59,) it is probable our Lord went, according to his custom, to the mount of Olives. The next day, which was the Sabbath, ver. 14, he met a man who had been born blind, sitting in some public place, and asking alms from those who passed by, chap. ix. 8.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. And as [
    Jesus] passed by , etc.] The word Jesus is not in the Greek text, but is rightly supplied by us, as it is in the Vulgate Latin, and as the word Christ is in the Persic version; for of his passing from the temple, and by the multitude that were there, and on his way to the place he designed to make to, is this said, as appears from the close of the preceding chapter; though some think this is to be understood of his passing by at another time and place, since the preceding fact of the womans being taken in adultery, and the discourse of our Lord with the Jews, were quickly after the feast of tabernacles; whereas the following ones, both in this, and the next chapter, seem to be at the feast of dedication, ( John 10:22), which was some months after: but it may be, that the parable of the sheep, though it runs in connection with what is said in this chapter, might be delivered then; or what follows, ( John 10:22), might be said at the feast of dedication, when the parable, and what is related here, might be delivered before, seeing there is so very strict a connection between this, and the preceding chapter; and the Ethiopic version is very express, rendering it, and departing from thence; that is, from the temple, at that time when the Jews took up stones to stone him: he saw a man which was blind from his birth ; which man was an emblem of Gods elect in a state of nature, who being conceived in sin, are transgressors from the womb, and so are alienated from the life of God through their ignorance and blindness: they are blind as to any true and spiritual knowledge of God in Christ; as to any true sight of sin, or sense of their own estate and condition; and with respect to Christ, and the way of peace, righteousness, and salvation by him; and as to the Spirit, and the operations of his grace, and with regard to the Scriptures, and the doctrines of the Gospel: and as Christ saw this man first, and not the man him, for he was blind, so Christ first looks upon his chosen ones with an eye of love and mercy, as he passes by them, and both enlightens and quickens them, ( Ezekiel 16:6,8). He saw Matthew the publican first, as he passed along, and called him from the receipt of custom to be a follower of him, ( Matthew 9:10).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-7 -
    Christ cured many who were blind by disease or accident; here he cure one born blind. Thus he showed his power to help in the most desperat cases, and the work of his grace upon the souls of sinners, which give sight to those blind by nature. This poor man could not see Christ, but Christ saw him. And if we know or apprehend anything of Christ, it is because we were first known of him. Christ says of uncommon calamities that they are not always to be looked on as special punishments of sin sometimes they are for the glory of God, and to manifest his works. Ou life is our day, in which it concerns us to do the work of the day. We must be busy, and not waste day-time; it will be time to rest when ou day is done, for it is but a day. The approach of death should quicke us to improve all our opportunities of doing and getting good. What good we have an opportunity to do, we should do quickly. And he tha will never do a good work till there is nothing to be objected against will leave many a good work for ever undone, Ec 11:4. Christ magnifie his power, in making a blind man to see, doing that which one woul think more likely to make a seeing man blind. Human reason cannot judg of the Lord's methods; he uses means and instruments that men despise Those that would be healed by Christ must be ruled by him. He came bac from the pool wondering and wondered at; he came seeing. Thi represents the benefits in attending on ordinances of Christ' appointment; souls go weak, and come away strengthened; go doubting and come away satisfied; go mourning, and come away rejoicing; go blind, and come away seeing.
