What does Luke 18:35 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 18:35

And it came to pass that as he was come nigh unto
Jericho
Which lay in his way to Jerusalem;

a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:
this was not blind Bartimaeus, nor his companion, for they were cured by Christ as he went out of Jericho; but this man before he came to it; for we afterwards read of his entrance into, and passing through Jericho, ( Luke 19:1 ) though much the same things are related in this account, as in that of the other two blind men; (See Gill on Matthew 20:30).
