I believe the man in John 9 is one of the most misunderstood people in the Bible. Apparently his witness was so powerful, the crowds continued to talk about his story in John 10:21 and 11:37, but we don't even get to know his name.

In the next scene, the lifeguard and a group of his buddies are yelling at the swimmer, "You didn't read the sign either! How dare you go to the water?" One turns to another and says, "How are we ever going to have any order around this place?"Read full transcript...
