Healing the two blind men in Galilee

Healing the two blind men in Galilee
Christ and the two blind men by Julius Schnorr, 19th century

Jesus healing two blind men is one of the miracles of Jesus in the Gospels (Matthew 9:27-31), immediately following the account of the Daughter of Jairus miracle.[1] It only appears in the Gospel of Matthew.

According to the Gospel of Matthew, as Jesus continued his journey after raising the daughter of Jairus, two blind men followed him, calling out, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!"

When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them:

"Do you believe that I am able to do this?"

"Yes, Lord," they replied.

Then he touched their eyes and said:

"According to your faith let it be done to you";

and their sight was restored. Jesus warned them sternly, "See that no one knows about this." But they went out and spread the news about him all over that region.
