When it was time for the party to celebrate God in Jerusalem, Jesus went up anyway and went into the temple to teach the people about God. The leaders were amazed because Jesus never went to their school to learn how to read the special writings. (Jesus is the One who gave them those special writings) Jesus told them, What I say is not from Me, but from the One who sent Me.
Then they tried to arrest Jesus but they couldn’t because it wasn’t time yet. He told them, I am with you for a little bit longer. Then I go back to the One who sent Me. And you will look for Me but you won’t find Me. You can’t come where I am going. The leader said, Where will He go that we can’t come.
Then on the last day of the party Jesus said, If you are thirsty, Come to Me and drink. Ones who believe on Me, out of their tummies will come rivers of water that is always alive. Jesus said this about the Holy Spirit that He would give to them after He went back up to heaven with the Father. When many people heard this they said, This really is the One, the Prophet.
Then they wondered, Is he going to kill Himself? Jesus told them, I am from heaven above and you are from this world below. I only tell you what He says. The One who sent Me is with Me and I always do what makes Him happy. Jesus told them, If you keep doing what I say, You are really Mine for always and you will know what is true and that will make you free.
Jesus told them, I have to do the work that He sent Me to do while it is daytime because the nighttime is coming when no man can work. While I am here with you in the world, I am the light of the world. Then Jesus spit on the ground and made some clay with the spit and put it on the man’s eyes. Jesus told the blind man, Go wash in the pool called Sent. So the man went, and when he had washed off the clay, he could see.
People who lived by the man said, Isn’t this the blind man? How can you see? The man said, A man named Jesus made clay and put it on my eyes and told me to go wash it off in the pool called Sent and when I did, I could see. The people took the man to the leaders and showed them, but they said, Jesus isn’t from God because he did this on the rest day. But other people said, How could he do it unless he was from God?
So the leaders called the man and said, How can you see? The man told them. Then they argued with him and said, This man isn’t from God because he made you see on the rest day. The man said, Has anyone since the world started been able to make one see who was born blind? If this man wasn’t from God he couldn’t do anything.
