two blind men

A discrepancy has been imagined between this account and those in Mark 10:46 ; Luke 18:35 . Matthew and Mark obviously refer to a work of healing as Jesus departed from Jericho. Bartimaeus, the active one of the two, the one who cried, "Jesus, thou Son of David," is specifically mentioned by Mark. Of the other one of the "two," we know nothing. The healing described by Luke 18:35 occurred before Jesus entered Jericho. As to the form of appeal, "Son of David" (cf) ; Matthew 9:27 ; 15:22 ; 21:9 . Jesus must have been so addressed constantly. The narratives therefore supplement, but in no way contradict each other.
