The Blind Beggar
This is the short story of bible for kids. A long time ago, there lived a blind beggar in the town of Jericho. His name was Bartimaeus. One day, Jesus and his followers were visiting the town. As they were leaving, they were crossing the road on which Bartimaeus was begging.
Since there was a lot of noise being made by all the people around Jesus, Bartimaeus asked a man about what was happening. The man told him that Jesus and his followers were passing by. Bartimaeus had heard a lot of good things about Jesus and the miracles he performed. So, he shouted out loud, “Son of David, help this poor blind beggar!” Also read, Birth Of Jesus.
He went on shouting again and again till Jesus heard him. People tried to keep him hide but Jesus told his followers to bring that beggar to him. Then, Bartimaeus was taken to Jesus. Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do?” The beggar replied, “Have pity on me, son of David! Let me get my eyesight back.”
On hearing this, Jesus said to him, “Go, your faith has saved you!” Bartimaeus got his eyesight back and was very happy. And so, from that very moment, he became a devout follower of Jesus.
