Day 56 Healing of the Blind: by spit, word, or mud

Here are three scenarios where Jesus used different ways to heal the blind.
Mark 8:23 He (Jesus) took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man's eyes and put his hands on him,...

MArk 8:46 Blind Bartimaeus Receives His Sight
Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (that is, the Son of Timaeus), was sitting by the roadside begging. Verse 51 "What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus asked him.The blind man said, "Rabbi, I want to see. Go," said Jesus, "your faith has healed you." Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

John 9:6 Having said this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man's eyes.

Jesus has no set formula for healing!

A friend of mine used to say, (tongue in cheek) that this was the beginning of the division in the church.
Word alone

He's probably not far from the truth :)
