Coffee Shop Conversations

Somewhere in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan..

Pharisee 1

The jerk who just came in says he was blind and now he can see.

Pharisee 2

“Nothing is that simple.”

Pharisee 1

“Ya know what they say; if it seems too good to be true, it probably isn’t.”

Pharisee 2

“The guy must have done something really bad to be blind in the first place.”

Pharisee 1

“Maybe his father was blind. They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”

JESUS – (Sitting at the counter)

“I healed him as my Father led me.

Pharisee 1

That was quite a lucky break for the guy, you healing him. Just who do you think you are, anyway?”

JESUS

“You’ll just have to take my word for who I am.”

Pharisee 2

Hey! Mister! Who’s responsible for healing your blindness?”

Former Blind Man

“A man called Jesus.

Pharisee 1

“So where is this guy now?”

Former Blind Man

“He’s sitting right over there at the counter.”

Pharisee 2

“Let’s just let the law handle it.

Lawman (arrives)

“Buddy, you’ve been traveling on a restricted license because of your blindness. You haven’t been wearing your seatbelt either. You’d better come clean about this cured blindness. What’s going on here?”

Former Blind Man

“All I know for sure is I was blind and now I can see.”

Pharisee 2

“Call the guy’s parents.”

Blind Man’s Father

“He’s ours alright. But he’s a big boy and he can speak for himself.”

Pharisee 1

“If that Jesus guy is a doctor, I’d call him a quack.”

Former Blind Man

“For a couple of guys with so many questions, you sure don’t have many answers.”

Pharisee 1

“Hit the road, buddy. Your kind never changes. How much do we owe ya for the coffee lady?”
