John 9:16

Because he keepeth not the sabbath (oti to sabbaton ou threi). This is reason (causal oti) enough. He violates our rules about the Sabbath and therefore is a Sabbath-breaker as charged when here before (John 5:10, John 5:16, John 5:18). Hence he is not "from God" (para qeou). So some.

How can a man that is a sinner do such signs? (Pwv dunatai anqrwpov amartwlov toiauta shmeia poiein). This was the argument of Nicodemus, himself a Pharisee and one of the Sanhedrin, long ago (John 3:2). It was a conundrum for the Pharisees. No wonder there was "a division" (sxisma, schism, split, from sxizw) as in John 7:43; John 10:19.
