Al Mohler unpacks John 9 in helpful ways during a chapel presentation at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary this past February 2.
The man Jesus notices is the man born blind.
You can watch it here: That the Works of God Might Be Displayed – What’s Missing from Preaching Today?
I particularly appreciated that Dr. Mohler read the entire chapter before he began preaching. He loves and respects God’s word, and shows it by letting others hear it for themselves.
He spends the last 10 minutes or so talking directly to preachers: “we must not domesticate this story.”
It is worth the time to watch the whole thing. But if you only have four minutes, watch from the 43:30 mark to the end.
(One small note: I disagree with his assessment of the parents of the man. And the quality of the video is poor; the audio is fine throughout, however.)
