Mark 5

Vs. 19, “Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your family and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.”  Jesus would heal two people possessed with demons, Mark’s gospel gives us one of their accounts.  In Jesus’ life, we see their isn’t much rest from opposition.  But, Jesus would cast these legions of demons into pigs.  Question: Why pigs?  Why not pigs?  Jesus was showing us that He is more powerful than demons, perhaps the pigs served as a sacrifice, and the casting of the demons on the pigs showed the heart of those in the town.  Even the the man wanted to follow Jesus, it’s interesting to note that Jesus would tell the man stay and be a witness.  The great faith of Jarius and the woman are also wonderful reminders people who put their trust in the Lord
