Bible story: Jesus heals the blind man in Bethsaida

Creative activities based on the Bible story of Jesus heals the blind man in Bethsaida

Mark 8:22-26 tells the story of Jesus healing a blind man in two stages. When they arrived at Bethsaida, some people brought a blind man to Jesus and begged him to touch him. Jesus took the man by the hand and led him out of the village. He then spit on the man's eyes and laid his hands on him, asking if he could see anything.

The man looked up and said he could see people, but they looked like trees walking around. Jesus then placed his hands on the man's eyes again, and his sight was completely restored.

This passage highlights Jesus' power to heal and his compassion for those in need. It also shows that sometimes healing may occur gradually, rather than all at once.
