Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
BARTIMÃ†US ( Mark 10:45 ). A blind man whom Jesus, on His way to the last Passover, healed at the gate of Jericho as He was leaving the city, according to Mt. ( Matthew 20:29 ) and Mk. ( Mark 10:46 ), who condense the story of what befell at Jericho; as He approached, according to Lk. ( Luke 18:35 ), whose fuller narrative preserves the proper order of events. BartimÃ¦us is not a name but a patronymic (cf. Bartholomew ), and St. Mark, for the benefit of his Gentile readers, gives the interpretation of it, ‘the son of TimÃ¦us.’
