Bartim us

Resource Toolbox

Bartimæus or Bartimeus (bär'ti-mç'us), son of Timeus. A blind man whose sight was restored by our Lord, when in the neighborhood of Jericho. Mark 10:45-52. If this narrative be compared with Matthew 20:29-34; Luke 18:35-43, some differences appear. For Matthew speaks of two blind men. According to some writers, our Lord healed one of these (as in Luke) on entering Jericho, and another (Bartimeus, as in Mark) on leaving it; and Matthew has, with characteristic brevity in recording miracles, combined both these in one.
