Jesus Heals a Blind Man

GUWG-Eye-closeWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

Jesus and his disciples traveled to a town called Bethsaida. Some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to heal him.

Here’s what happened next:

Jesus took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?”

He looked up and said, “I see people. They look like trees walking around.”

Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. Jesus sent him home, saying, “Don’t even go into the village.”

(Mark 8:22-26)

Let’s look at our 2 BIG Questions:

1. Who exactly is Jesus?

He again demonstrates that he’s the compassionate Great Physician, able to restore sight to the blind.

2. What exactly should we do?

Ask Jesus to open our eyes so that we can see everything clearly.
