following the Son of David

In our Gospel today we hear the story of two blind men healed by Jesus. In the Gospels the idea of blindness always carries with it the sense of the literal, as a physical disability, & the metaphorical, in the sense of spiritual blindness. Often in the Gospels those who are physically blind are spiritually better able to see than many of their peers. In today's passage, they were following Jesus ... two blind men were able to follow him down the road, calling out after him, according him a Messianic title, and asking for his mercy. Though blind, they knew who he truly was; Jesus the Christ ... the one whom even the blind can easily follow if they are spiritually open, if they will but see through the eyes of faith. Amen.
