John 9:24 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Then again called they the man," (ephonesan oun ton anthropon ek deuterou) "Then they called the man the second time;- The "they" refers to the Pharisees, Joh 9:15, who had already dragged the healed man through the third degree of examination for ulterior motives, despising Jesus Christ, bent on finding a legal ground for killing Him, Joh 5:16; Joh 5:18; Joh 5:25; Joh 8:37; Joh 8:40.

2) "That was blind, and said unto him,'' (hos hen tuphlos kai auto eipan) "Who was (once) blind and said directly to him," as a former blind man, and a beggar, now set free or at liberty, released from blindness and the need to beg, Joh 9:8.

3) "Give God the praise:” (dos doksan to theo) "Give or dole out to God glory,'' or high praise, putting words in the man's mouth, not realizing that to acknowledge what Jesus had done, in healing him, was giving God who sent Him, praise, Jos 7:19; 1Sa 6:5; Col 3:17. It was an appeal for the man to tell the truth in the presence of God, though they did not receive it.

4) "We know this man is a sinner." (hemeis oikamen hoti houtos ho anthropous hamartolos estin) "We know that this man (Jesus) is (morally and ethically) lawless," or a sinner, who misses the mark of holiness, in healing on the Sabbath day, Joh 9:14; Joh 9:16; Joh 5:16; Joh 5:18.
