Here is the ancient idea that past sin of a person or the parents, etc. results in misfortune down the line. Jesus heals a man born blind, makes clay, puts on the man’s eyes, tells him to go to the Pool of Siloam to wash the mud off. The blind man sees. Trouble arises for both the healed man and the Healer, since the event takes place on a Sabbath day, and making mud is work. A confrontation arises between the religious authorities, the healed man, his parents, and of course, Jesus.
