I was blind but now I see
In the gospel of John, we read the story of Jesus healing a man who was born blind. This man rejoiced greatly that he could finally see. Until then, he lived a life not knowing what things looked like without the aid of his hands. Then one day, Jesus gave him sight and this man was so happy and grateful for what he received. Suddenly all the colours became alive and darkness was conquered by the light.
For two thousand years people have been fascinated by the person of Jesus. He has inspired ordinary individuals and leaders of empires. He has been interpreted, followed, argued over and worshipped all over the world. Even our calendar is organised around his birth.
