A blind beggar healed by Jesus outside Jericho, according to Mark (Mark 10: 46–52), though in Matt. 20: 29–34 the narrative is of two blind men healed. That the beggar followed Jesus ‘on the way’ (Mark 10: 52) indicates that he became a disciple when his eyes were opened. Discipleship is one of Mark's themes and according to Acts 9: 2 the early Christian community knew itself as ‘the Way’.
