Back to Faces of Christ (3)

As he approached Jericho a blind man sat at the roadside begging. Hearing a crowd going past, he asked what was happening, and was told that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by. Then he called out, 'Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me.'
The people in front told him to hold his tongue; but he shouted all the more, 'Son of David, have pity on me.'
Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came up Jesus asked him, 'What do you want me to do for you?' 'Sir, I want my sight back,' he answered. Jesus said to him, 'Have back your sight; your faith has healed you.'
He recovered his sight instantly and followed Jesus, praising God. And all the people gave praise to God for what they had seen.
