Jesus of Nazareth Passeth By
by T. Austin-Sparks
"Jesus of Nazareth passeth by... what arose as the issue in this case, and does always arise as the issue when Jesus of Nazareth comes into proximity to a life, the greatest of all issues, I think, bound up with the coming near to us of the Lord Jesus: it is nothing less than having our eyes opened, being given spiritual sight. Perhaps spiritual sight is the greatest of all the spiritual values, to see! For this man it brought him into a world that had been closed to him, into possibilities that were all shut to him - a new world, a new life, a new prospect; everything new, by having his eyes opened, by seeing."
