Both Matthew, chapter 20:29, and Luke, chapter 18:35, have something similar, but with some differences. Luke had Jesus entering or approaching Jericho, not leaving it, as Matthew and Mark indicate. Mark said that Jesus had come to Jericho (Καὶ ἔρχονται εἰς Ἰερειχώ). However, he was leaving Jericho (Καὶ ἐκπορευομένου αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ Ἰερειχὼ) with his disciples (καὶ τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ) and a large crowd (καὶ ὄχλου ἱκανοῦ), when this incident occurred. Jericho was about 15 miles east of Jerusalem and about 8 miles north of the Dead Sea. Jesus was getting closer to Jerusalem, but not quite there. Mark is the only gospel writer that named this blind beggar Bartimaeus (Βαρτιμαῖος), the son of Timaeus, even with the name of his father (ὁ υἱὸς Τιμαίου). Bartimaeus was a blind beggar (τυφλὸς προσαίτης), sitting by the way or the roadside (ἐκάθητο παρὰ τὴν ὁδόν). On the other hand, Matthew had 2 unnamed blind beggars, while Luke only had 1 unnamed blind beggar.
Luke, chapter 5:33, and Matthew, chapter 9:14, are similar to Mark, so that Mark might be the source of this incident, although there are some differences. Matthew had only the disciples of John the Baptist ask about fasting. Mark has this strange combination of the disciples of John the Baptist with the Pharisees who agreed about fasting (Καὶ ἦσαν οἱ μαθηταὶ Ἰωάνου καὶ οἱ Φαρισαῖοι νηστεύοντες). They wanted to know why the disciples of Jesus did not fast. The disciples of John seemed to be on the side of the Pharisees, and not followers of Jesus, as they wondered why they and the disciples of the Pharisees were often fasting or abstaining from food (καὶ ἔρχονται καὶ λέγουσιν αὐτῷ Διὰ τί οἱ μαθηταὶ Ἰωάνου καὶ οἱ μαθηταὶ τῶν Φαρισαίων νηστεύουσιν), while the disciples of Jesus were not fasting (οἱ δὲ σοὶ μαθηταί οὐ νηστεύουσιν). Some have traced the descendant followers of John the Baptist to the Mandaeans along the Iraq-Iran border.
Once again, there are some differences with Luke, chapter 14:21-24, who was more descriptive of those who were invited this time. Finally, we have a third invitation. Jesus said that this king told his slaves (τότε λέγει τοῖς δούλοις αὐτοῦ) that the wedding feast was ready (Ὁ μὲν γάμος ἕτοιμός ἐστιν). Those originally invited were not worthy or deserving of his invitation (οἱ δὲ κεκλημένοι οὐκ ἦσαν ἄξιοι). Therefore, they were to go into the main streets or the meeting places on the roads (πορεύεσθε οὖν ἐπὶ τὰς διεξόδους τῶν ὁδῶν). Then they should invite everyone or as many as they could find to this wedding banquet (καὶ ὅσους ἐὰν εὕρητε καλέσατε εἰς τοὺς γάμους). This king was intent on having this wedding dinner. Notice the original chosen ones, the Israelites, were not considered worthy. Now the invitation went out to all people to come to the banquet feast of the son, Jesus.
Both Mark, chapter 10:46, and Luke, chapter 18:35, have something similar, but with some differences. Luke has Jesus entering Jericho, not leaving it. Matthew has Jesus and his apostles or disciples leaving Jericho (Καὶ ἐκπορευομένων αὐτῶν ἀπὸ Ἱερειχὼ). As usual a large crowd followed him (ἠκολούθησεν αὐτῷ ὄχλος πολύς). Jericho was 15 miles east of Jerusalem and about 8 miles north of the Dead Sea. Jesus was getting closer to Jerusalem, but not quite there.
