we find the Lord leaving the temple and healing the blind.
He does so after the Jews had rejected His words,
accused Him of being possessed by a demon,
and had tried to kill Him.
He did the miracle to pacify their cruelty and violence and to underline the facts.
He did a supernatural miracle that had no precedence.
Listen to the healed person who states: “Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind,”
May be some physician had opened the eyes of someone who had become blind,
but this never happened to one born blind.
Upon leaving the temple, the Lord intentionally went to work.
This clearly indicates that it is He who saw the blind man and not vice
The Lord looked at him jealously and the disciples understood His compassion.
St. John Chrysostom
