Large crowds followed Jesus wherever he went, bringing their sick friends and
relatives to be healed. On this day as he was leaving Jerusalem, he was again
accompanied by a crowd of people. As he drew near to Jericho they saw a blind
beggar sitting by the roadside. His name was Bartimaeus . 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 be quiet, but he
called out even louder to Jesus. Jesus stopped and told his disciples to call
Bartimaeus over to him. They said to him, "Cheer up! On your feet! He is
calling you." He threw off his coat and came to Jesus. Jesus asked him what he
wanted, and he said, "Rabbi, (meaning 'teacher') I want to see." Jesus said,
"Go, your faith has healed you." Immediately, he was able to see, and he
followed Jesus. What a happy day in the life of this blind man who had
believed in the healing power of the Son of God!
