Something occurred to me once when reading this passage that I haven't heard brought up before. When Bartimaeus was told to cheer up, that Jesus wanted him to come forward, he threw aside his cloak. Someone who was a beggar (and this was likely one of the few possessions he owned) tossed it aside without hesitation. There could be only one reason for this that I can think of - he had absolute faith that he would have no trouble finding his cloak again. That after going to Jesus, his sight would be restored and he would be able to see where he had thrown it. Many think it was his persistence alone that demonstrated his faith to Jesus, but I believe it was this physical act of faith that spoke more loudly.
