The Pharisees Investigate

13They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind. 14And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. 15Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said to them, He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and do see. 16Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keeps not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them. 17They say to the blind man again, What say you of him, that he has opened your eyes? He said, He is a prophet. 18But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight. 19And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who you say was born blind? how then does he now see? 20His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: 21But by what means he now sees, we know not; or who has opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself. 22These words spoke his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. 23Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him. 24Then again called they the man that was blind, and said to him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. 25He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. 26Then said they to him again, What did he to you? how opened he your eyes? 27He answered them, I have told you already, and you did not hear: why would you hear it again? will you also be his disciples? 28Then they reviled him, and said, You are his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples. 29We know that God spoke to Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from where he is. 30The man answered and said to them, Why herein is a marvelous thing, that you know not from where he is, and yet he has opened my eyes. 31Now we know that God hears not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and does his will, him he hears. 32Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. 33If this man were not of God, he could do nothing. 34They answered and said to him, You were altogether born in sins, and do you teach us? And they cast him out.
