Mark chapter 8

A man born *blind

Verses 22-26

We think that this man was born *blind. In other words, he could never see.

Jesus took the man away from the village. He did not do these things so that other people would know. He did these things because he wanted to help ill people.

When Jesus put his hands on the man, God made the man able to see. But the man could not understand the things that he saw. So he thought that people seemed like trees. His eyes were well. But he had not yet learned how to recognise things.

So Jesus put his hands on the man again. And God helped the man again. Then everything was clear. The man was able to recognise everything. His mind understood whatever things his eyes saw.

Jesus still did not want the people to know what he had done. So he told the man that he must go to his home. Jesus did not want the man to return to Bethsaida.
