“And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:”
King James Version (KJV)
18:35 #Mt 20:29|; Mr 10:46.
Lu 18:35-43 As he was come nigh to Jericho. This was on his last journey to Jerusalem, a little more than a week before the crucifixion. Matthew and Mark also give accounts of the healing of the blind beggar. See notes on Mt 20:29-34. Compare Mr 10:46-52. Matthew says there were two blind beggars. "If there were two there certainly was one". Luke and Mark only name the one who was most active and earnest. Mark says his name was Bartimaeus (Mr 10:46). For a description of Jericho, see note on Mt 20:29.
