HEALING

Healing is the fulfillment of divine law.

In the tenth chapter of the Gospel of Mark is the record of the healing of the blind beggar Bartimaeus. One day as he was sitting by the highway near Jericho begging, Jesus and his disciples passed by. Bartimaeus was told by his friends of the Master's presence, and loudly, eagerly, he called after him, "Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me." Those about him urged him to be quiet, but "he cried the more a great deal. Thou son of David, have mercy on me." "And Jesus stood still," the record reads, and commanded Bartimaeus to be called; whereupon the blind man, "casting away his garment," arose and went to him. "What wilt thou that I should do unto thee?" the Master asked him. And Bartimaeus replied, "Lord, that I might receive my sight." Jesus said to him, "Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole." And we read that "immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way."
