Discussion for Mark 5

  • Stella nwakohu
    In this chapter, we have, I. Christ casting the legion of devils out of the man possessed, and suffering them to enter into the swine (v. 1-20). II. Christ healing the woman with the bloody issue, in the way as he was going to raise Jairus's daughter to life (v. 21-43). These three miracles we had the story of before (Mt. 8:28 , etc. and Mt. 9:18 , etc.) but more fully related here.

    V. 8, the "unclean spirit" is a demon. V.9, there were more than one demon in the man, "we are many." In V.12 the devils made a request of Jesus.

    Are these devils, considered sickness? Some people have said there are no demon spirits.

    Supernatural over-rides the Natural. Miracles are inevitable in a "Miracle-Ready Miracle-Receptive" environment. What stops a lot is: unbelief. Matthew 13:58
