John 9.35 as a Test Case Benjamin E. Reynolds Tyndale University College Toronto, Ontario, Canada firstname.lastname@example.org Abstract Scholarship has largely rejected the relevance of the Johannine Son of Man sayings as a source for solving the Son of Man debate. Th e suspicion of Jesus’ words in John is the obvious reason for this rejection. Jn 9.35 presents an interesting test case for rethinking the authenticity of the Son of Man sayings in John. An examination of this saying reveals that it is discontinuous with early Christianity, Second Temple Judaism, and confessions of faith in John’s Gospel. Th e combination of these factors suggests the possibility that the say- ing may have come from the lips of the historical Jesus.
