The woman at the well starts the story in a state of sin and ends up with grace. The man born blind starts out blind and of course can see. And Lazarus starts the story dead and comes to light.



JP,

The story of the blind man is a good example of what Jesus was up to as well as than doing good. He was proving who He was to the people at that time. Also when He forgave a crippled man's sins and then aske which was the easier to forgive sins or cure the man. He then cured the man.

Then look at Our Lady of Lourdes. How did we know Bernadette saw Our Lady, because miraculous cures took place. There are others all through history. What does Joseph Smith and his ilk offer us? Something there is no proof of.
