|Deliverance of the Gadarene
|Our story begins in the New Testament Book of Mark, Chapters 4 and 5, and
Luke 8, verses 22 through 39.. Jesus has been using a small ship docked at shore
as a podium from which to teach the multitudes who have come to hear him.
When evening comes, he requests to be taken across the lake, to the country of
the Gadarenes. He then retires to the bottom of the ship, finds a pillow, and lays
down to catch a nap. Meanwhile, as the disciples are rowing, a violent storm
arises on the lake, and the waves become so high the ship begins to take on water.
Panicking, the disciples wake Jesus - asking him if he isn't concerned that they
are all getting ready to perish. Jesus tells the wind and sea to settle down. As the
weather related phenomena subside, Jesus asks his disciples why they were so
fearful, and why their faith was so small. However, they are so awe-stricken, all
they can do is ask each other..." what manner of man is this, that even the wind
and the sea obey him?"
As soon as they reach the shore, a man comes running out to meet them.
It is immediately obvious that he is not your typical welcoming committee.
|But if I with the finger of
God cast out devils, no
doubt the kingdom of
God is come upon you.
