The Gospel in Biblical Narrative

From Series: Basics 2017

John 9:1-41  (ID: gs1253)

There are many literary forms contained in the Bible’s 66 books, and are all God-inspired and should be preached. Just as the text differs in its literary form, so pastors must adapt the structure of their sermons to the passage. Dr. Albert Mohler uses the account of the blind man who received his sight in John 9 as a strong example of allowing the biblical narrative itself to explain the truth of the Gospel. This story of a man who obeyed the Lord’s commands and received both physical and spiritual sight leads naturally to the question Jesus asked that day: Will we see Him or, thinking we see, remain blind?


Jesus Heals a Man Born Blind

1As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth.
