Bible Notes

Matthew 20.29-34 (05.07.19)

Matthew 20:29-34 NIV
As Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. [30] Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” [31] The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” [32] Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked. [33] “Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.” [34] Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.

Again Jesus asks someone what they want from him, more more pertinent here is who he asks – the two blind men who the crowd hushed up and tried to keep hidden from Jesus. Raises an interesting question, who were the blind in this tale, the two men with no sight who called on Jesus to have mercy on them, or the disciples who couldn’t see the extent of Jesus’ compassion and mercy…

Spirit, I want to see…
