As Jesus walked along, He saw a man who had been blind since the day he was born.
Jesus spit on the ground.
He made some mud with His spit and dirt.
Jesus put the mud on the man's eyes.
He told the man, "Go and wash in the pool of Siloam."
The man did exactly as Jesus said.
And he was able to see!
He was very happy and very thankful that Jesus healed him. Jesus healed the man from blindness so that people would see the work of God and believe that He is the Light of the World.
Many of the people in town saw the man. They were surprised that he could see. They asked him, "How were your eyes opened?" The man explained, "Jesus made some mud. He put it on my eyes. Then he told me to go wash in the pool of Siloam. I went and washed, and then I could see."
Jesus had healed the blind man on the Sabbath day. No one was supposed to do any work on the Sabbath day. Some men called Pharisees were not happy with Jesus. They didn't think He should perform a miracle on the Sabbath day. The Pharisees were also angry at the man. They kicked him out of the synagogue.
Jesus heard about this. He went to the man and asked him, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?" (John 9:35). He replied, "Who is he? Can you tell me so that I can believe in Him." Jesus said, "You have seen Him. He is the one you are speaking with."
Then the man said, "I believe, Lord." And he worshipped Jesus.
