Let me explain.
One day as Jesus walked the dusty road stretching between the old and new cities of Jericho, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, called out:
Son of David, have mercy on me!
Why? Jesus was the son of Mary and Joseph.
‘Son of David’ meant more than being a son of a man called David. It was a label. Specifically, it was the title given to the One who would be known as the Messiah. Bartimaeus’ statement was incredible because this visually impaired man saw something that many other people had been searching for and missed.
He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him.
A number of groups in Jesus’ day were searching for the Son of David.
The Zealots thought the Messiah would be a militaristic hero. They believed if they could stir up Israel to fight the Romans, God would send the Messiah to free them.
The Essenes had given up on Jerusalem and the Temple and had run for the hills. They lived in a holy huddle, having nothing to do with the rest of the Jews. They had their own schools, their own shops . . . essentially their own community. They believed the Messiah would recognize that only they were the sons of light.
The Pharisees were looking for a Messiah sent by a Holy God. If they could only get Israel to clean up her act and eliminate the sinners, then surely God would send the Son of David.
Yet they made the mistake so many of us make.
We miss God in our lives, not because we do not know what He looks like, but because we have decided what He looks like in advance. Then, when He arrives, we are so busy investing our time, energy, thoughts, and finances in what we expect Him to achieve, that we fail to see what He is really up to.
We invest in the wrong Jesus.
For us to see, we first have to become blind.
Bartimaeus saw with his own eyes the miracles of Jesus, but only after his blindness helped him recognize the miracle that is Jesus.
When Bartimaeus called out to Him, Jesus asked him a question.
What do you want me to do for you?
This seems like an unusual thing for Jesus to ask. Surely it is obvious. Unusual? Yes. Uncommon? No. Some Bible scholars estimate that Jesus was asked 300 questions during His ministry and that he gave a straight answer to three. They also say that Jesus asked around 125 questions, many of which were in answer to questions He was first asked. In other words, if you asked Jesus a question, you had a one-in-three chance of being asked one in return!
Jesus was a pioneer but He was also a rabbi, and rabbis answer by asking.
