Jesus Heals a Deaf Mute
Miracle 17: The Sacred Geometry Story
Jesus left Tyre through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee and into the Decapolis. Some people brought a deaf and dumb man to him and begged him to put his hand on him. Jesus took him away from the crowd, put his fingers into his ears, then spit on and touched his tongue, looked up to heaven, sighed deeply, and said “Ephphatha!” (Be opened!). Immediately the man’s ears were opened, his tongue released, and he began to talk clearly. The people widely proclaimed the miracle saying, He did everything well, made the deaf hear, and the mute speak!
Jesus performed this exorcism miracle on a deaf-mute in two steps. In verse 33, Jesus touched the bonds on the deaf-mute's ears with his fingers and then spit on the bonds over his mouth. In verse 34 Jesus said a supernatural Aramaic command over the deaf-mute to destroy the unnamed 'Unclean Spirit' that caused his affliction. You need to read the Greek source text and the sacred geometry diagrams formed by the text so you can see step by step exactly how Jesus cured this deaf-mute man. The gospels of Matthew and Luke admit the 'deaf-mute' was "demon possessed" ("kufon daimonizomenon" Mt 9:32, Lk 11:14). The key to the solution in Mark is seeing the unmentioned 'Unclean Spirit' and the 'bonds' over his ears and tongue in the diagrams. The Greek text will help to position the mute, the crowd that brought him, and Jesus who broke the unclean spirit and the bonds on the deaf mute's tongue and ears.
