There are only two kinds of people. There's no half sight. There are no partially blind. You either see or you are totally blind. As the country preacher put it once, ‚Äú there's only two kinds of people in the world, the saints and the aints, and that's all!‚ÄĚ
Now this entire issue of blindness and the entire issue of sight is really what governs chapter 9 of John.
So as we open to John chapter 9 we open to the 6th of the 7 special sign miracles. At the end of chapter 8 they are trying to stone Christ to death. Chapter 9 open right after that as Jesus passed by the entrance to the Temple, He sees this particular blind man. And then one of the greatest miracles in all of the scriptures happens. He heals him. That's the story. What is the message? After healing his eyesight, Jesus heals his soul.
