Topic Study: Jesus Healing the Blind

STUDY TOPIC: Jesus’ Miraculous Healing of the Blind

KEY PASSAGE(S): Various

Jesus dealt with people as individuals, treating each according to his/her needs. When it came to His performing miracles, it was the same way. Sometimes it was a very personal, private, almost instantaneous matter. Other times, there seemed to be a bit of a process involved – some steps that needed to be taken or some obedience that needed to be demonstrated – either for the benefit of the person being healed, the onlookers or both.

Look up each of the four situations where Jesus heals a person who could not see and answer the questions, noting the differences and how Jesus handled each situation… each person as a unique encounter. (Note: The healings are presented in sequential order as they took place with the same questions asked of each miracle, so the answer to some may be “nothing” or “none,” if not relevant to what took place during that particular healing.)
