Miracle on a Man Pretending to be Disabled
There must have been poor men who pretended to be physically handicapped, such as being blind or with paralyzed or disabled legs, to raise sympathy and accept charity, even in Jerusalem 2000 years ago.
When Christ Jesus met with such a man, He did not scold the poor man but show His love to the man. The pretending panhandler felt His love and stopped his pretension. It is because while no others could see his pretension but he felt that Christ Jesus saw not only his histrionic behavior in the street but also his life of misery.
However, it is thought that Christ Jesus could really heal the sick, in addition to pretenders who tried to look sick or handicapped. Christ Jesus must have been able to charge His physical energy to the bodies of sick people. The energy must have got into their bodies to activate cells and immune systems to overcome sickness or recover lost physical functions. And His sense of love to the sick and the disabled must have conveyed His healing energy.
So, even today, what medical doctors need is this sense of love to the sick and the disabled more than modern medicines and medical treatment.
For example, no modern medical care could allow men to live forever. But Christ Jesus said that if a man believed in Him, the man could get eternal life. Indeed, eternal life is the most valuable thing for anyone. But to believe Him means to hear teachings of God or Christ Jesus and practice them.
Truly, Christ Jesus said to women that those who believed Him and act according His words are His mother and sisters.
Therefore, even a poor man who begs money from passersby by pretending a disabled man could be welcomed as a brother of Christ Jesus in Heaven if only he believed Him and practiced His teachings. Then, it would be really called a miracle on a man pretending to be disabled.

M'r:8:22: And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.
M'r: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.
M'r:8:24: And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
