John 9:30 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "The man answered and said unto them," (apekrithe ho anthropos kai eipen autois) "The man responded and said to them," to his skeptic Jewish questioners, the reviling, blind, unregenerate Pharisees, Mat 5:20.

2) "Why herein is a marvelous thing,'' (en touto gar to thaumaston estin) "Then in this dilemma there exists a marvelous thing,'' a baffling thing, if you theologians can't even tell where He comes from, it must simply be unexplainable in its mystery, Joh 3:10; 1Ti 3:16. His prophetic revelation and these miracles rendered them inexcusable, Rom 2:1.

3) "That ye know not from whence he is,"(hoti humeis ouk oidate pothen estin) "That you all do not perceive or comprehend from where he is coming,'' His origin, presence, or existence. Such is the blinding bondage nature of sin upon the religious and irreligious, 1Co 2:14, Eph 4:17-18, 2Co 4:3-4.

4) "And yet he hath opened mine eyes." (kai enoiksen mou tous ophthalmous) "And he has opened my eyes,'' and you all are now the blind men "blinded by the god of this world, hypocrites," as repeatedly given their (lDs) later by Jesus, Mat 23:16-17; Mat 23:19; Mat 23:24; Mat 23:26, Psa 119:18; Isa 29:18-19; Isa 35:5; 2Co 4:6; Joh 20:30-31.
