Christ could have healed the man by the simple touch of His hand, or even with His words. But He probably realized that the man’s faith was weak.
We find that even after Christ had been resurrected, His disciples’ faith was weak. Their human nature required “physical evidence” of the miracle that had taken place (even above and beyond Christ’s presence among them). (Read Luke 24:40 and John 20:27-29.)
Christ healed the blind man in a “step-by-step” manner, rather than all at once, in order to increase the man’s faith, before totally healing him.
While newspapers, magazines and other news media report what happened, The Real Truth analyzes and explains the root cause of why events happen—why humanity is at a loss to solve today’s problems.
