Bible story: The blind see and the mute speak

Creative activities based on the Bible story of The blind see and the mute speak

In Matthew 9:27-34, two blind men follow Jesus, calling out to him and pleading for mercy. When they catch up to him, he asks them if they believe that he is able to heal them. They respond affirmatively, and Jesus touches their eyes, saying, "According to your faith, let it be done to you." Immediately, their eyes are opened and they are able to see.

Jesus warns them not to tell anyone about what has happened, but they spread the news throughout the region. In another incident, a man who was unable to speak due to possession by a demon is brought to Jesus. He casts out the demon, and the man is able to speak again. This passage highlights Jesus' miraculous healing power and his compassion for those who suffer.
