8:26 Do not even enter the village. Jesus had led him out of the town (v. 23), so it is likely that the message of this miracle was intended for His disciples. They must realize that Jesus is gradually healing their spiritual sight. While in v. 21 they still do not understand who Jesus is, they too, like the blind man (v. 25), are about to see “clearly” the mystery of His person (vv. 27–30).
