Mark 8:22-26 records Jesus' healing of a blind man at Bethsaida. When the villagers brought the man to Jesus, Jesus took him outside the town, spit on the man's eyes, laid his hands on him, and asked him if he could see anything. The man answered, "I see men as trees, walking." Jesus then put his hands on the man's eyes again and made him look up, and with that the man could see clearly and normally. Jesus sent the man home, instructing him not to tell anyone back in the town. This account contains several remarkable details and raises interesting questions.
