The blind man is awarded for his faith.
Jesus used the title “Son of Man” often to refer to himself.
Note how Jesus’ interaction with this man is different than we’ve seen in other areas of the Bible. First, he was healed. Then, he was persecuted. Finally, he believed. All of our paths are different.
The man worshipped Jesus, and Jesus accepted his worship. This is another sign Jesus is God.
Jesus came as judge.
It all comes down to accountability. If the Pharisees would admit their blindness, they could see. Yet, they choose to remain spiritually blind.
