What Do We Need To Focus On?

Handout Do you know what was the most frequently performed healing of Jesus? Curing blindness. There are at least 5 specific episodes in which Jesus resolved someone’s physical blindness (Matthew 9:27-31; 12:22; Mark 10:46-52; Luke 8:22-26; John 9:1-7) as well as references to Jesus healing numerous others who were blind (Matthew 15:30; Luke 7:21).
