Reformation Study Bible – John 9:16
John 9:16

9:16 Sabbath. Instead of being grateful for this supernatural work of God’s grace, the Pharisees began to haggle about the observance of the Sabbath. Their concern was specifically about their traditional interpretation of what the fourth commandment required. Not one of the actions involved (spitting, applying mud, going as far as Siloam, washing one’s face, healing a blind man) was forbidden by the law. Rather than question their own understanding of the law, they rejected Jesus and His ministry.
