Treasury of Scripture

And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who you say was born blind? how then does he now see?

Is this.

John 9:8,9
The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? …

Acts 3:10
And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.

Acts 4:14
And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.









(19) Is this your son, who ye say was born blind?--The "ye" is emphatic; ye say he was born blind, as opposed to us, for we do not believe it. There are three questions. Is this your son? Do ye still say that he was born blind? which is incredible, as he now possesses the faculty of sight (John 9:32). If you do, how do you account for the fact that he now sees?

How then doth he now see?--Their question means--"How does it come to pass, since he was born blind, that he all at once seeth?" The word rendered "now," here and in John 9:21; John 9:25, conveys the idea of the suddenness of the change which had taken place.
