Blind man eyes healed

There are a number of times in the Gospels Jesus opened blind eyes. This one second to last as He was approaching new Jericho on His way to Jerusalem and His death by Crucifixion, this event happened on the day of 7th of Nisan.

The blind man reconsigned Jesus as Lord. Then Jesus stopped and touched his eyes and they where healed. Then he followed Jesus.

Those who could not work had to beg for food or 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.

Blind man eyes healed

18:35 As Jesus was approaching Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the road begging. 36 Now hearing a crowd going by, he began to inquire what this was. 37 They told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by. 38 And he called out, saying, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 39 Those who led the way were sternly telling him to be quiet; but he kept crying out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” 40 And Jesus stopped and commanded that he be brought to Him; and when he came near, He questioned him, 41 “What do you want Me to do for you?” And he said, “Lord, I want to regain my sight!” 42 And Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has made you well.” 43 Immediately he regained his sight and began following Him, glorifying God; and when all the people saw it, they gave praise to God.
