24 So a second time they called the man who had been blind, and said to him, “Give glory to God; we know that this man is a sinner.”25 He then answered, “Whether He is a sinner, I do not know; one thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.”26 So they said to him, “What did He do to you? How did He open your eyes?”27 He answered them, “I told you already and you did not listen; why do you want to hear it again? You do not want to become His disciples too, do you?”28 They reviled him and said, “You are His disciple, but we are disciples of Moses.29 We know that God has spoken to Moses, but as for this man, we do not know where He is from.”30 The man answered and said to them, “Well, here is an amazing thing, that you do not know where He is from, and yet He opened my eyes.31 We know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him.32 [a]Since the beginning of time it has never been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a person born blind.33 If this man were not from God, He could do nothing.”34 They answered him, “You were born entirely in sins, and are you teaching us?” So they put him out.
