A cool dozen joined YHC for a near perfect morning at the #fenceline. We had some #natville veterans present for the first time in Quicken and Long Time. Long Time also brought an FNG with him, Allen Hunt, now known as Slum Lord.

***3rd F Highlights***Bird’s Nest Site Q***

John Chapter 9

  • Review –
    • Jesus claimed to be the light of the world
      • people struggled with that (spiritual blindness)
      • He chose to heal a physically blind man – man not only began to see physically, but spiritually as well
  • vs 4 Night is coming
    • Jesus is speaking of a period of time. We are still in the period of Light
  • Audiences
    • Audience 1
      • They identify the man, being born blind (neighbors)
    • Audience 2
      • Deny the man, saying he is a look-a-like to the man born blind
    • Blind Man himself
      • Man who healed him was the man they call Jesus
    • Parents
      • confirmation of son and miracle
      • didn’t want to confirm Jesus though (Fear of being thrown out of Temple/Social Standing)
        • He is of age (vs 21-22)
    • Remaining Crowd
      • Only God could do this
      • Sinner couldn’t possibly do this
  • Pharisees
    • immediately brought blind man to trial
    • Pharisees conclude Jesus is not from God because he does not keep the Sabbath(vs 16) (He is a sinner)
    • History – violates religious law not God’s law (Still with Moses) vs 28
    • Gave credit for healing to God, denied Jesus
  • Blind Man tracking through all of this (summoned 2 times)
    • man vs 11
    • From God
    • Prophet vs 17 (high honor at this time for blind man. No prophet in 450 years/Malachi)
    • Lord vs 38
      • blind man ejected from Synagogue, Jesus was in pursuit (of his heart this time)
        • tells man He is the Son of Man (favorite description Jesus uses)
        • Son of = perfect
        • Lights have been turned on. God was not satisfied otherwise
  • vs 39 – judgment
    • Jesus came into the world for our judgment, not to judge us.
    • Discernment, for us to wisely make a decision about God
    • So that we may recognize that we have a need
  • vs 40
    • Pharisees offended at being called blind (spiritually)
    • ownership
      • recognize need = sight
      • vision > self righteousness, steeped in sin > spiritual blindness

Bird’s Nest prayed us out. I believe the group will meet next week, summer schedule is in debate due to vacation schedules. YHC will be on vacation the next 2 weeks. Remind Bird’s Nest to hit the record button.
