One of the important efforts in the postcolonial approach to biblical interpretation of the Bible is the emergence of other voices which so far have been marginalized due to the dominance of the structure or, and of a nation. The study is used in biblical texts, to see how domination takes place in text and interpretation, by seeing hegemonic power in a structure of society. The other voices to be raised in this article are the voices of persons with disabilities, especially in the text of John 9: 1-40. The text describes a long narrative about the miracle of healing a child who was born blind, who at the same time became a figure, who dared to voice his existence and identity, in the midst of fierce dialogue with Jews and Pharisees. In this narrative there is an attempt to read and interpret the text of John 9: 1-40 using the postcolonial approach.
