John 9:37 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Then Jesus said unto him," (eipen auto ho lesous) "Jesus said directly to him," in response to his appeal, as He had answered questions that had helped both Nicodemus and the Samaritan woman to be saved, Joh 9:3-4.

2) ''Thou hast both seen him,'' (kai heorakas auton) ''You have even seen him," already, when Jesus had searched for and found Him, taken the initiative that the man might be saved, Joh 9:35. Jesus was more anxious to give him eternal life than physical sight, 1Jn 5:13. Much as the disclosure to the Samaritan woman, Joh 4:26.

3) "And it is he that talketh with thee." (kai ho lalon meta sou ekemos estin) "And he is that one who is speaking to you," or communicating with you, right now, the one who healed you. This is much like He revealed His identity to the Samaritan woman, Joh 4:26. Further light burst forth upon the former blind man at this moment, more light than at the moment his blind eyes had been opened, for he now saw himself as a sinner and Jesus as the "Light of the world," who lightens and enlightens 11 every man that cometh into the world," Joh 1:9; Luk 2:32, Joh 8:12; 2Co 4:3-4.
