Context: The author, writing of Jesus' early ministry in the region about the Sea of Galilee, gives many examples of Christ's healing people with infirmities. When Jesus enters the town of Bethsaida, people implore that He heal a certain blind man. Jesus leads the man out of town, spits on his eyes, lays His hands on him, and asks the man if he can see:
And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him
look up; and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.
