And a man who was lame from his mother's womb was carried there and placed every day at the temple gate called Beautiful, so he could beg from those entering the temple complex.
And since they saw the man who had been healed standing with them, they had nothing to say in response.
After they had ordered them to leave the Sanhedrin, they conferred among themselves,
saying, "What should we do with these men? For an obvious sign, evident to all who live in Jerusalem, has been done through them, and we cannot deny it!
"Neither this man nor his parents sinned," Jesus answered. "[This came about] so that God's works might be displayed in him.
The Jews did not believe this about him-- that he was blind and received sight-- until they summoned the parents of the one who had received his sight.
They asked them, "Is this your son, [the one] you say was born blind? How then does he now see?"
"We know this is our son and that he was born blind," his parents answered.
"But we don't know how he now sees, and we don't know who opened his eyes. Ask him; he's of age. He will speak for himself."
And they were astounded and amazed, saying, "Look, aren't all these who are speaking Galileans?
And they were all astounded and perplexed, saying to one another, "What could this be?"
They were all struck with amazement and kept saying to one another, "What is this message? For He commands the unclean spirits with authority and power, and they come out!"
And they were all astonished at the greatness of God. While everyone was amazed at all the things He was doing, He told His disciples,
For the Father loves the Son and shows Him everything He is doing, and He will show Him greater works than these so that you will be amazed.
