Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 9:6-7

_ _ he spat on the ground, and made clay ... and he anointed the eyes of the blind man — These operations were not so incongruous in their nature as might appear, though it were absurd to imagine that they contributed in the least degree to the effect which followed. (See Mark 6:13 and see on John 7:33.)

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 9:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 9:6

He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay — This might almost have blinded a man that had sight. But what could it do toward curing the blind? It reminds us that God is no farther from the event, when he works either with, or without means, and that all the creatures are only that which his almighty operation makes them.

(3) Christ healing the man born blind by taking the symbol of clay, and afterward the symbol of the fountain of Siloam (which signifies "sent") shows that as he at the beginning made man, so does he again restore both his body and soul: and yet in such a way that he himself comes first of his own accord to heal us.
