John 9:3 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Jesus answered," (apekrithe lesous) "Jesus replied," to their confused inquiry, to the "either or" blame fixing cause of the man's blindness, on the man or his parents.

2) "Neither hath this man sinned," (oute houtos hemarten oute hoi gones autou) "Neither this one sinned nor his parents," to cause the blindness. Jesus did not claim that the parents were sinless, or that the blind man was sinless, but that no special sin of either caused the man to be born blind.

3) "But that the works of God should be made manifest in him." (all' hina phanerothe ta erga tou theou en auto) "But (this exists) in order that the works of God might be manifested in him," by the miracle I will perform, Joh 3:2. Redeeming Light and Redeeming Love was manifest for the Spiritual healing of all who desire and ask for it, without regards to the definitive cause of the blindness, See? Joh 11:4; Joh 7:17; Psa 145:18-19; Tit 2:14.
