  1. Jean says:

    By giving sight to the blind men, Jesus was fulfilling the prophesy that he preached from Isaiah at the beginning of his ministry:

    “….He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed….,”

    This particular healing in the context of that prophesy fulfillment might be viewed as setting at liberty the captives or the oppressed, and, ironically, not the recovering of sight to the blind. These men actually saw through faith who Jesus was despite their physical blindness. Their release from physical blindness loosed bonds of captivity which previously prevented them from physically following Jesus.

    It took a lot of faith and courage to request their sight. No longer could they beg for a living. They were going to have to look for a new vocation. They would have to live by the grace of God and His Word.

    There is a personal application here. Thanks for teaching from this passage this week.
