Someone has well said, "When you look at a beautiful athlete" such as we will be seeing in the Olympic Games very shortly -- these fine, handsome, well-coordinated young men and women"what you are looking at is the ruin of an Adam. But if we think we know, and we are confident that we do not need any help, then we are stumbling on into blindness. When you notice that John points out the meaning of the name of this pool to which Jesus sent this man he says it means "Sent"he obviously is indicating that these strange actions of Jesus -- spitting on the ground, making clay, anointing the eyes with the clay, and then sending the man to the pool to wash which he never does with any other person -- is a symbolic action that is teaching something deeper than the mere opening of a man's eyes.

    We will find ourselves eventually falling into a pit, unable to be helped. John RSV Here we see the resistance developing. John b RSV They voted him out, excommunicated him from the synagogue.

Achan succumbed to the temptation to line his own pockets with the spoils from the victory at Jericho.

It was a difficult journey the Lord sent him on, but when he found his way to the pool, whose meaning is "Sent," then his eyes would be opened and he would be washed and cleansed. Someone has well said, "When you look at a beautiful athlete" such as we will be seeing in the Olympic Games very shortly -- these fine, handsome, well-coordinated young men and women"what you are looking at is the ruin of an Adam.

Last June my youngest daughter and I were in Jerusalem, and we walked one afternoon from the temple area down the deep declivity of the Kidron ravine to the pool of Siloam. And you are no better off! Why would a God of love permit handicaps to helpless children, or permit horrible accidents to those who are already well-developed, perhaps beautiful young people?
