Mark 10:46 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Son of Timaeus

Mark, as usual, is particular about names.

Blind

Diseases of the eye are very common in the East. Thomson says of Ramleh, "The ash-heaps are extremely mischievous; on the occurrence of the slightest wind the air is filled with a fine, pungent dust, which is very injurious to the eyes. I once walked the streets counting all that were either blind or had defective eyes, and it amounted to about one-half the male population. The women I could not count, for they are rigidly veiled" ("Land and Book"). Palgrave says that ophthalmia is fearfully prevalent, especially among children. "It would be no exaggeration to say that one adult out of every five has his eyes more or less damaged by the consequences of this disease" ("Central and Eastern Arabia").

Beggar

See on Matthew 5:3.

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

they came.

Matthew 20:29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.

*etc:

Luke 18:35 And it came to pass, that as he was come near to Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:

*etc:

as he went. Luke says that this took place 'as he was come nigh unto Jericho,' and afterwards records an event which took place in that city. But the words [en to engizo autou eis lericho,] may be rendered, 'When he was nigh Jericho,' which is equally true of him who is gone a little way from it, as of him who is come near it; and as it is probable that Jesus stayed some days in the neighbourhood, this might occur as he went out of the city during that time, and he might afterwards re-enter it.
