Jesus heals a man born blind


Another marvellous New Testament video segment from the web pages. This one is distinguished for me by the scenes in which the man's sight is restored - compelling visual acting and directing/ editing.

As so often with these pieces, I find a sudden appreciation of the impact of Jesus on his contemporaries.

Also, I marvel yet again at the Gospel of St John - and its amazing eye-witness verisimilitude. I would find it hard to take seriously anybody who asserted that this Gospel was not written by the Apostle. Such a person would need a tin ear for the nature of writing, as well as an axe to grind.
