Key story : an uneducated beggar is healed and stands up to an angry religious group

John 9:6-9 NLT
[6] Then he spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and spread the mud over the blind man’s eyes. [7] He told him, “Go wash yourself in the pool of Siloam” (Siloam means “sent”). So the man went and washed and came back seeing! [8] His neighbors and others who knew him as a blind beggar asked each other, “Isn’t this the man who used to sit and beg?” [9] Some said he was, and others said, “No, he just looks like him!” But the beggar kept saying, “Yes, I am the same one!”

John 9:24-25 NLT

Follow Jesus

John 9:26-28 NLT
[26] “But what did he do?” they asked. “How did he heal you?” [27] “Look!” the man exclaimed. “I told you once. Didn’t you listen? Why do you want to hear it again? Do you want to become his disciples, *too*?” [28] Then they cursed him and said, “*You are his disciple*, but we are disciples of Moses!

John 9:29-30 NLT
[29] We know God spoke to Moses, but we don’t even know where this man comes from.” [30] “Why, that’s very strange!” the man replied. “*He healed my eyes, and yet you don’t know where he comes from?*
