The Fortieth Miracle of Messiah:

Mattai 21:14-17

וַיִּגְּשׁוּ אֵלָיו עִוְרִים וּפִסְחִים בַּמִּקְדָּשׁ וַיִּרְפָּאֵם׃ וַיְהִי כִּרְאוֹת רָאשֵׁי הַכֹּהֲנִים וְהַסּוֹפְרִים אֵת הַנִּפְלָאוֹת אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה וְאֵת הַיְלָדִים הַצֹּעֲקִים בַּמִּקְדָּשׁ וְאֹמְרִים הוֹשַׁע־נָא לְבֶן־דָּוִד וַיִּחַר לָהֶם׃ וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֵלָיו הֲשֹׁמֵעַ אַתָּה אֶת־אֲשֶׁר אֹמְרִים אֵלֶה וַיֹּאמֶר יֵשׁוּעַ אֲלֵיהֶם שֹׁמֵעַ אָנֹכִי הֲכִי לֹא קְרָאתֶם מִפִּי עוֹלֲלִים וְיוֹנְקִים יִסַּדְתָּ עֹז׃ וַיַּעַזְבֵם וַיֵּצֵא אֶל־מִחוּץ לָעִיר אֶל־בֵּית־עָנְיִי וַיָּלֶן שָׁם׃

 נִגְּשׁוּ אֵלָיו עִוְרִים וּפִסְחִים בְּבֵית הַמִּקְדָּשׁ וְהוּא רִפֵּא אוֹתָם. כִּרְאוֹת רָאשֵׁי הַכֹּהֲנִים וְהַסּוֹפְרִים אֶת הַנִּפְלָאוֹת אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה וְאֶת הַיְלָדִים הַצּוֹעֲקִים בַּמִּקְדָּשׁ, “הוֹשַׁע־נָא לְבֶן־דָּוִד!”, נִתְמַלְּאוּ כַּעַס וְאָמְרוּ לוֹ: “אַתָּה שׁוֹמֵעַ מַה שֶּׁאֵלֶּה אוֹמְרִים?” הֵשִׁיב לָהֶם יֵשׁוּעַ: “כֵּן, הַאִם מֵעוֹדְכֶם לֹא קְרָאתֶם, ‘מִפִּי עוֹלְלִים וְיוֹנְקִים יִסַּדְתָּ עֹז’?” לְאַחַר מִכֵּן עָזַב אוֹתָם וְיָצָא אֶל מִחוּץ לָעִיר, אֶל בֵּית עַנְיָה, וְלָן שָׁם. פ

The blind and lame approached Him (Yeshua) in the Temple, and He healed them. When the chief priests and scholars (scribes) saw the wonders He performed and the children crying out in the Temple and saying, “Hoshea-na (הוֹשַׁע־נָא-Save [Israel] now!) to the [Messiah] Ben David!” they became filled with anger. They said to Him, “Do you hear what they are saying?” Yeshua said to them, “I hear it. Have you never read, ‘From the mouths of children and nursing infants you have founded (established) strength?’ He left them, went outside the city to *Beit-Ani (Bethany), and spent the night there.”

[*Beit-Ani (בֵּית־עָנְיִי) near Jerusalem, in Aramaic means “House of My Misery, Affliction, and Poverty.” This village (previously a sanctuary for lepers) is the home of Lazarus, Miryam, Marta, and Shim’on the Leper (שִׁמְעוֹן הַמְצֺרָע). The Messiah raised Lazarus from the dead and He healed many who were afflicted with leprosy. Therefore, this village of the House of My Misery, Affliction, and Poverty testifies to all of us. For according to the prophets and Messiah we are all dwelling in a condition of spiritual impurity (leprosy), poverty, and death that can only be remedied by the merciful, gracious, redemptive help of our Messiah (יֵשׁוּעַ-the Salvation of Adonai) and the Spirit of Adonai our Father (יְהוָ֖ה אָבִ֣ינוּ-blessed be He) who forever Indwells HaMoshia l’chol Adam (the Savior of all humankind.]
