Think about the lessons we’ve learned so far in Luke 18 (the persistent widow, the broken tax collector, the helpless child, as well as the proud Pharisee, the rich ruler, and the ignorant disciples). What do you think Luke is trying to teach us about mankind, Jesus and salvation?
Why are we sometimes so quick to judge drug addicts and sinners who are sick, poor, and homeless? What does this story teach us about true “blindness” and Jesus’ heart for those who walk in darkness?
Describe the blind man’s faith using examples from the passage. Can someone “believe” in Jesus and still not be saved? Explain.
How are you like the blind man in this story? Think about your own faith; do you have the same kind of saving faith as this blind man? Why or why not?
How do you think the blind man’s life changed after being healed by Jesus? Do you think he returned to a life of begging? Why or why not? How should our lives change after being “healed” by Jesus?
