Acts 9:18

_ _ there fell from his eyes as it were scales — “This shows that the blindness as well as the cure was supernatural. Substances like scales would not form naturally in so short a time” [Webster and Wilkinson]. And the medical precision of Luke’s language here is to be noted.

_ _ was baptized — as directed by Ananias (Acts 22:16).
