Mark 10:46-52

Bartimaeus 1, Crowd 0

They came to Jericho. As he and his disciples and a large crowd were leaving Jericho, Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the roadside.

When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"

Many sternly ordered him to be quiet,

but he cried out even more loudly, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"

Jesus stood still and said, "Call him here."

And they called the blind man, saying to him, "Take heart; get up, he is calling you."

So throwing off his cloak, he sprang up and came to Jesus.

Then Jesus said to him, "What do you want me to do for you?"

The blind man said to him, "My teacher, let me see again."

Jesus said to him, "Go; your faith has made you well."

Immediately he regained his sight and followed him on the way.

Crowd Mentality

Cartoon Cool Stuff

This time it is the crowd, not the disciples, that try to prevent someone from seeing Jesus. Perhaps the crowd was well intentioned, trying to spare Jesus from being bothered by a blind beggar, but they still missed the point. Bartimaeus calls to Jesus, son of David, to have mercy on him. He knows Jesus can heal him. He sees what the crowd does not. May we never be so blind as to refuse to call on Jesus because we think he cannot help us.
