Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 8:23

_ _ And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town — Of the deaf and dumb man it is merely said that “He took him aside” (Mark 7:33); but this blind man He led by the hand out of the town, doing it Himself rather than employing another — great humility, exclaims Bengel — that He might gain his confidence and raise his expectation.

_ _ and when he had spit on his eyes — the organ affected — See on Mark 7:33.

_ _ and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw aught.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 8:22-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 8:23

He led him out of the town — It was in just displeasure against the inhabitants of Bethsaida for their obstinate infidelity, that our Lord would work no more miracles among them, nor even suffer the person he had cured, either to go into the town, or to tell it to any therein.
