The Gospel of John: The Healed Beggar

John 9v1-41

Matt Deisen | June 5, 2022 | Duration: 46 minutes


After Jesus heals a man born blind, he is dragged before the religious elite, who refuse to believe what has happened. Unfortunately the verdict was decided before the trail, and the evidence of the healed beggar doesn’t count. But the reason this story is so striking is that it captures the cultural moment that we’re living in. In what ways are we the healed beggars of the 21st century, dragged before modern day pharisees who have put the verdict before the trial?
