Hearing. According to Chapter 7 in the Gospel of St. Mark, Jesus cured an unidentified deaf man. Interpretations of this passage include Jesus' singling out the deaf man for individual attention apart from the crowd, making him aware of God's love and help by use of a few natural signs, and restoring the man's hearing and speech with the word "Ephphatha" (Hebrew for "Be opened").
