INTRODUCTION. This miracle took place as Jesus passed through Jericho on his way to Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover Feast. This was his last journey to Jerusalem just prior to his crucifixion.

Jericho lies in the Jordan River valley about 1200 to 1300 feet below sea level just north of the Dead Sea. In New Testament times Jericho was a beautiful city with a warm, pleasant climate–a luxuriant oasis famous for its date palms and rose gardens. Jesus was accompanied by a crowd, for people journeying to the feast always traveled in large groups. As the crowd left Jericho, a blind man (two according to Matthew) sat by the wayside begging and cried to Jesus for mercy.
