People's Bible Notes for Matthew 9:27


Mt 9:27 Two blind men followed him. This account is given only by Matthew. Blindness is still very common under the burning sun and among the blinding sands of the East. No sight is more common than blind beggars. The want of attention to the eye when first diseased is one reason why this affliction is so common. [Thou] son of David, have mercy on us. The title, "son of David", applied to Jesus by these blind men, as well as by those healed at Jericho, implied his Messiahship, as it was understood that the Christ was to be the son of David (Jer 23:5 Ps 132:11 Mt 22:42 Mr 12:35 Ro 1:3).
