He sprang up.
He went to Jesus.”
ὁ δὲ ἀποβαλὼν τὸ ἱμάτιον αὐτοῦ ἀναπηδήσας ἦλθεν πρὸς τὸν Ἰησοῦν.
This is a unique saying of Mark. Upon hearing that Jesus wanted to see him, Bartimaeus, the blind beggar, threw off his cloak or coat (ὁ δὲ ἀποβαλὼν τὸ ἱμάτιον αὐτοῦ). He rose up or sprang up (ἀναπηδήσας) and went to Jesus (ἦλθεν πρὸς τὸν Ἰησοῦν). He reacted very favorably to the request from Jesus and his disciples.
