Verse 59

The Jews understood that Jesus was claiming to be God. They began to stone Him for making what they considered a blasphemous claim (John 5:18; Leviticus 24:16). However, Jesus hid Himself because His hour had not yet come (John 2:4; John 7:6; John 7:8; John 7:30; John 7:44; John 8:20; John 18:6). Then He departed from the temple. He did not protest or retaliate, another indication of His submission to the Father.

This concludes Jesus’ light of the world discourse (John 8:12-59). The Light of the World now symbolically abandoned the Jews by leaving the temple and went out to humanity in general, which the man born blind represents.
