"And he cometh to Bethsaida" - Miracle stories in the Gospels

Miracle stories in the Gospels

There is a question on whether a blind man who has never seen a man and a tree would tell that a man looks like a tree when he is given the ability to see for the first time in his life.

Although we should not doubt miracle stories in the Gospels, there is still a need to make an effort to correctly interpret the miracle stories in the Gospels.

Mar 8:22 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.
Mar 8:23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
Mar 8:24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
