A Blind Beggar receives his sight, Luke 18:35-43

There is a number of times in the Gospels Jesus opened blind eyes. This one was as Jesus approached Jericho to pass through it on His way to Jerusalem and his death by crucifixion.

This blind man reconsigned Jesus as Lord and was able to heal him from his blindness.

Those who could not work had to beg for food and money like now in many countries where the state does not look after the sick.

A sign of the Messiah was He would heal the blind, make the deaf and mute hear and speak, heal the sick and raise the dead.

Background Reading:

A Blind Beggar Receives His Sight from Jesus

18:35 As Jesus was approaching Jericho, there was a blind man sitting by the road begging. 36 When he heard the crowd going by, he asked what was happening. 37 They told him that Jesus from Nazareth was coming by. 38 So he shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 39 The people at the front of the crowd sternly told him to be quiet, but he started shouting even louder, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

40 Then Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, 41 “What do you want me to do for you?”,

He said, “Lord, I want to see again!”

42 So Jesus told him, “See again! Your faith has made you well.” 43 Immediately the man could see again and began to follow Jesus, glorifying God. All the people saw this and gave praise to God.
