The man on the left is Bartimaeus. He is an atheist. He wants to believe in God but just can't. One day he saw a priest giving a sermon in the middle of town. He wanted to see if the priest could help him find his sight so he could be set on the right path.
Bartimaeus tried to get to the priest but the crowd rebuked him and wouldn't let him through. But the Priest said to let the man pass.
Bartimaeus expressed his problem to the priest and the priest said "One day God will come to you and you will see him and forever be in awe". Now Bartimaeu's mother was sick and was about to pass away. Suddenly he got a call that said she was going to make a full recovery. As from that moment on, his sight was healed.
