“Jesus healing blind Bartimaeus” by Johann Heinrich Stöver, 1861. Hesse, Germany.

I gotta wonder about the new found conversion of those praising Jesus for this healing right after they had been trying to forbid it, kicking this fellow in the face. The tables are immediately turned when he gets his sight back and they look like total fools. Yet this fellow is not vengeful, but rather praises God. And perhaps this leads them to true conversion. They see the love of Jesus and love he receives back. And they like it. Good.
