Jesus Heals a Blind Man

Isaiah 42:7

Mark 10: 46 - 52

Matthew 20: 29 - 34

Luke 18: 35 - 43

Under Jewish law, people with birth defects or with certain illnesses could not study in the synagogue, nor could they worship in the Temple.

Not only did Jesus want them to have rich and full daily lives, just like anyone else, most especially he wanted them to be in full relationship with God.

His physical healing of people always put them in a position where they could be spiritually healed as well.
