Mark English Standard Version (ESV) Jesus Heals Blind Bartimaeus. 46 And they came to Jericho. And as he was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a great crowd, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the roadside. 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 48 And many rebuked. Answer: The story of Blind Bartimaeus occurs in the Gospel of Mark and concerns the healing of a blind beggar called Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus. A parallel account mentions two blind men (Matthew ), but Mark focuses on the one who was no doubt familiar to his readers. On his way out of Jericho, Jesus was surrounded by a huge crowd. Blind Bartimaeus “Jesus said to him, ‘Go your way; your faith has made you well.’ And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him on the way” (v. 52). Mark tells us that on the road from Jericho to Jerusalem, Jesus runs into “Bartimaeus . . . the son of Timaeus” (v. 46). Bartimaeus now formally present his request to Christ: The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.” He is asking in faith and that faith is very well evident by his great effort to be with Christ. In ve we now see the reward of Bartimaeus’ great faith and persistence.
The faith of Bartimaeus is seen in how he addresses Jesus as the Son of God. While the crowd tells the blind man to be quiet, Bartimaus just became louder! When Jesus tells his disciples to bring the blind man over, a miracle happens because of his faith. His name was Bartimaeus (bar tu MAY us). He began to shout, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" (Jesus was called Son of David because he was a descendant of King David who had ruled Israel for 40 years many years before.) The blind man's friends told him to . The Bible tells us of a man by the name of #Bartimaeus who sat on the road side begging people money when they past by. This was a way of life for Bartimaeus because he could not find much work because of his blindness. For years #blind Bartimaeus sat on the road side begging money. He was a professional beggar. He was good at this. Those (of us) who grew up inside one of the Christian religions have been exposed to the stories of the New (and Old) Testament from childhood onwards. We have a very difficult time adjusting to the biblical scholarship of the last two centuries.
