The Jesus Tree–Day Twenty-Five

Today’s readings were about Jesus healing the man born blind. We read three different accounts from Matthew 20:29-34, Luke 18:35-43, and John 9:1-41. Actually, I was interested to discover, (because I had somehow never noticed it before), that in Matthew, it was actually two blind men that were healed. The Luke and John accounts, by contrast, only include one blind man. And the John account goes into a great amount of detail about how the man was healed, and what happened when the Pharisees questioned him afterward…to the point where I wonder if John is recounting a different healing altogether. I’ve been too lazy to actually look it up and see, however!
