Matthew 9:27-31

As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!” 28 When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”“Yes, Lord,” they replied. 29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you”; 30 and their sight was restored. Jesus warned them sternly, “See that no one knows about this.” 31 But they went out and spread the news about him all over that region.

The Question

According to the Gospel account, as Jesus continues his journey after raising the daughter of Jairus, two blind men follow him, calling out, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!"

Jesus asks the two blind men seeking healing, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?"

If faith is present, miraculous healing will occur according to God's will

Hebrews 11:6

Matthew 9:29

Then He touched their eyes, saying, "According to your faith let it be to you.

Double miracle

The Jews thought of blind eyes as "shut," and seeing eyes as "open." Jesus removes two men's blindness—they can now see and comprehend what was once closed to them

Psalms 119:18

Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law.

Spiritual blindness has only one remedy: Jesus Christ dwelling in us by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus healed the blind men, proving that He was indeed the Son of God with powers beyond anything a mortal man could have
