DISCOURSE IX.

THE CURE OF BLIND BARTIMEUS.

And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho,

a certain blind man sat by the way-side, begging: and

hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant,

and they told him that Jesus of Nazareth passed by:

and he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David, have

mercy on me. And they who went before rebuked

him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so

much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.

And Jesus stood and commanded him to be brought

unto him, and when he was come near, he asked him,

saying, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee:

and he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight; and

Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight; thy faith hath

saved thee: and immediately he received his sight, and

followed him, glorifying God. --Luke xviii. 35-43. 110

with them when Jesus came. The other disciples,

therefore, said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But

he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the

print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of

the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I wi be-

lieve. And after eight days, again his disciples were

within, and Thomas with them. Then came Jesus, the

doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace

be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither

thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy

hand, and thrust it into my side; and be not faithless,

but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto

him, My Lord and my God.John xx. 24–28. 219
