    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.
