Mark 8:23-25 ” When He had spit on the man’s eyes and put His hands on him, Jesus asked, ‘Do you see anything?’ He looked up and said, ‘I see people; they look like trees walking around.’ Once more Jesus put His hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened.”

This was the only miracle of the Lord’s that wasn’t fully realized on the first attempt. The reason for this incremental healing was not because of limited power on the part of Jesus, but to illustrate and parallel His disciples journey from complete spiritual blindness, to partial sight, to clear vision. For by now the disciples had been personal witnesses to to many miracles and teachings…their spiritual blindness slowly changing each day. For it was only a few verses later that Jesus asked them directly, “But what about you? Who do you say I am?” At that point Peter answered for the group, “You are the Christ.” And at that moment, the disciples were able to see clearly and distinctly that Jesus was in fact the long awaited Messiah.
