The Greek word anapedao

Found just once in the New Testament (Mk. 10:50) and not used in all our manuscripts, the Greek verb “anapedao” meant “jump up” or “leap.”

A blind beggar named Bartimeus “sprang up” (ASV) when he realized Jesus wanted to see him (Mk. 10:49).

How nice it would be if most today would “jump” at the opportunity to know and serve the Lord.
