John 9:17

Unto the blind man again (twi tuplwi palin). The doctors disagree and they ask the patient whose story they had already heard (verse Matthew 15 ). In that he opened thine eyes (oti hnewixen sou tou opqalmou). Causal use of oti and triple augment in the first aorist active indicative of anoigw. They offer the excuse that the man's experience particularly qualified him to explain the "how," overlooking the fact he had already told his story and also trying to conceal their own hopeless division of opinion. He is a prophet (prophth estin). The man will go that far anyhow.
