John 9:39 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "And Jesus said," (kai eipen ho lesous) "And Jesus (then) said," as a summary or conclusion to this healing and saving encounter and conflict revolving around a man born blind.

2) "For judgement I am come into this world," (eis krima ego eis ton kosmon touton) "For the purpose of judgement I came into this world," indicating the justness of the sentence He was about to pronounce upon the Pharisees who had hounded the former blind man, rather than rejoicing that a citizen once blind and begging had been relieved of both by Jesus, Joh 5:22; Joh 5:27; Joh 12:47-48.

3) "That they which see not might see,'' (hina hoi me blepontes bleposin) "In order that those who see not may see," 1Pe 2:9, that the blind might come to see, the physically blind, through His miracles that men might believe His Deity, and that those spiritually blind, both Jew and Gentile might see, Luk 4:18-21; Mat 13:13-17; Joh 20:30-31. Unbelievers who are blinded spiritually, by the god of this world, may receive twenty-twenty vision by faith in Jesus Christ, 2Co 4:3-4.

4) ''And that they which see might be made blind." (kai hoi blepontes tuphloi genontai) "And in order that those who see may become blind," Joh 3:19; Act 7:51; Act 7:53. Those Jews with good physical vision (twenty-twenty vision) physically, become stone blind spiritually through hard-hearted rejection of God's Son, who was sent in definitive fulfilled prophesies before their eyes, which they refused to believe, and miracles He performed, with incontestable evidence that He was from God, Joh 3:2; Joh 5:43; Joh 20:30-31.
