People's Bible Notes for Matthew 20:34


Mt 20:34 Jesus . . . touched their eyes. The faith of the blind men had saved them. Compare Mr 10:52 Lu 18:42. Faith saved. The blind Bartimaeus (1) asked about Jesus as he passed; (2) cried to him as the Son of David, the Messiah; (3) asked for mercy; (4) kept on crying when they tried to stop him; (5) when permitted, sprang up and hurried to Jesus; (6) asked of him to receive his sight. This is faith in action.

    I like how Jesus open the blind eyes. When we are afflicted we must pray, whether ppl like it or not. Our Lord answers

    I enjoy reading the scriptures. We must understand that we are all equal in the sight of God wether we are accepted first or last. Have a bless day.

    René: To "rise again" is a little like "to get up again". The "again" implies "sooner than you would expect". Imagine you have a little child who you put to bed at 8:00, and they came back into the room at 8:15. You say "I put you to bed and you got up again!" This is a "phrasal verb": the 2nd word implies something. You'd get it normally, but you misinterpret it because you read "literally".
