Moving Foward by Faith

Today we conclude our “Living by Faith” series as we look at the faith of blind Bartimaeus.


Mark 10:46-52 NLT

46 Then they reached Jericho, and as Jesus and his disciples left town, a large crowd followed him. A blind beggar named Bartimaeus (son of Timaeus) was sitting beside the road. 47 When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus of Nazareth was nearby, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

48 “Be quiet!” many of the people yelled at him.

But he only shouted louder, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

49 When Jesus heard him, he stopped and said, Tell him to come here.”

So they called the blind man. “Cheer up,” they said. “Come on, he’s calling you!” 50 Bartimaeus threw aside his coat, jumped up, and came to Jesus.

51 What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked.

“My Rabbi, ” the blind man said, “I want to see!”

52 And Jesus said to him, Gofor your faith has healed you.” Instantly the man could see, and he followed Jesus down the road.
