John 9:14 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1) "And it was the sabbath,'' (en de sabbaton) "Now it was a sabbath," an holy day, when the man had been healed of his blindness, much as Jesus had healed the thirty-eight year old infirm man at the pool of Bethesda, not far away, on a previous sabbath day, Joh 5:9-10; Joh 5:16; Joh 5:18; Joh 5:25, for which the Jews had wanted to kill him.
2) "Day when Jesus made the clay," (en he hemera ton pelon epoiesen ho lesous) "On which day Jesus (had) made or formed the clay," from the dust of the earth, from which man was taken, to restore sight to the blind beggar, Joh 9:6; Joh 9:11.
Now he could sing, "I once was blind but now I see."
