Blind Bartimaeus eyes healed

There are several times in the Gospels where Jesus opens blind eyes. This one was His last as He left Jericho on His way to Jerusalem for His last Passover before His death by Crucifixion which would be followed by His Resurrection this happened on the day of 7th of Nisan.

Blind Bartimaeus recognized Jesus as Lord and believed Jesus could cure his blindness.
Jesus called Bartimaeus, healed his eyes so he could see clearly, and then sent him on his way. But when Bartimaeus realized he was healed, he followed Jesus.
Bartimaeus, like many around him, could not work and had to beg for food or money, like countries in our world today where the State does not look after the sick.
A prophetic sign of the Messiah was that He would heal the blind, the deaf, the mute and those who were sick, and that He would even raise the dead.

Background Reading:

Jesus Heals Blind Bartimaeus

10:46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus, his disciples, and a large crowd were leaving Jericho, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus (that is, the son of Timaeus) was sitting by the road. 47 When he heard that Jesus of Nazareth was there, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 48 Many people sternly told him to be quiet, but he started shouting even louder, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

49 So Jesus stopped and said, “Call him!”

So they called the blind man and told him, “Have courage! Get up. He’s calling you.” 50 He threw off his coat, jumped up, and went to Jesus.

51 Then Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?”

The blind man told him, “Rabbouni, I want to see again.”

52 Jesus told him, “Go. Your faith has made you well.” At once the man could see again, and he began to follow Jesus down the road.
Mark 10:46-52
