Matthew 20:29-34

Jesus causes two men to see near Jericho

29 Later, Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho. A large crowd of people followed him. 30 Two men were sitting at the side of the road. They were blind. But they heard that Jesus was walking past them. So they shouted, ‘Master! Son of David! Please be kind to us and help us.’

20:30‘Son of David’ is another name for the special person, the Christ, that God would send to save his people. It is another name for Jesus.

31 The people who were in the crowd were angry with them. They told them that they should be quiet. But the men shouted even louder, ‘Master! Son of David! Please help us!’

32 Jesus stopped there. He asked the two men, ‘What do you want me to do for you?’

33 ‘Sir,’ the men replied, ‘we want to see again.’

34 Jesus felt sorry for the two men. He touched their eyes and immediately the men could see again. So they followed Jesus along the road.
