John 9:23 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1) "Therefore said his parents,'' (dia touto hoi goneis autou eipon) "On account of this his parents replied," answered the question as they did on point three, Joh 9:19. To be totally excluded or suspended, a third time, after two successive 30-day suspensions from the synagogue, was similar to being a leper, separated from social touch with the masses of the Jews.
2) "He is of age; ask him." (hoti helikian echei auton eperotesate) "He has age (is of legal responsible age) you all ask him." And accept his testimony about the latter question especially, on which he has experimental, personal knowledge, Joh 9:21; Rom 14:11-12.
