A Model Disciple
Scripture: Mark 10:46–52
This episode sets the stage for the climax of Mark’s story. Jesus prepares to enter Jerusalem as the Son of David, the messianic king predicted in Scripture. It is there that the next act in the drama of redemption will unfold. The faith and restoration of sight of the blind man stand in sharp contrast to the stubborn spiritual blindness of the religious leaders, who will oppose Jesus and plot his death.
