Bartimaeus
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A blind beggar whom Jesus healed.There are three different accounts of this miracle:Mark 10:46–52. Christ restores the beggar’s sight when going from Jericho to Jerusalem. The beggar’s name is given as Bartimaeus.Luke 18:35–43. Christ performs the same miracle “as he drew near to Jericho” (ESV). The blind man is not named.Matthew 20:29–34. Jesus heals two unnamed blind men as he was leaving Jericho.Because these records are so similar, it is likely that they all describe the same event. The minor differences can be taken as evidence of how widely the incident was known before the Gospels were given their final form.
