Jesus in a Pain-Filled World
|John 9 (NKJV™)|
|1||Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth.|
|2||And His disciples asked Him, saying, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"|
|3||Jesus answered, "Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.|
|4||"I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.|
|5||"As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."|
|6||When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay.|
|7||And He said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam" (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing.|

"If God is in charge and loves us, then whatever is given is subject to His control and is meant ultimately for our joy"—Elisabeth Elliot. That perspective—which is the biblical one—is far removed from the typical sentiment about pain. Most ask, "If God really loved me, how could there be evil and suffering in this world—especially for me?!"
Some people think that Jesus was a prophet or a good teacher. Some have even said that He was a shaman or an extraterrestrial being. These misconceptions were the same 2000 years ago--and Jesus is still misunderstood. This series clarifies who Jesus is by looking at both His humanity and His deity, and gives us a platform from which to answer questions about who He is.
