Wesley's Notes for Mark 5:19


5:19 Tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee - This was peculiarly needful there, where Christ did not go in person.

    Mark 5 (cont. 2); Everything about this scene; the frightening drama of the man's deliverance and healing; the panicked reaction of the people when they came out to see what had happened, and then begged the Lord that He would go away from them; the man asking if he could stay with the Lord, but being sent home rather to show his friends what God had done for him; is all full of spiritual lessons!
  • A disciple
    "The country of the Gadarenes" was in the Southeast corner of the Sea of Galilee, in the borders of Gad and Manasseh. Not exactly in a place where the Pharisees and the rich and powerful of Jerusalem held too much influence on the people; the effects of the irreligious and unclean spirit over the place no doubt had contributed to this poor man being taken by such a terrible "legion" of demons.
  • Scott Hutchins
    In chapter (4), Jesus demonstrated His power over nature. As Creator God, Jesus has the power to speak and have His words obeyed. In chapter (5), He demonstrates His power over the unseen spiritual realm, His power to heal by changing the cellular/molecular structure of our bodies, and His power to restore life to a dead body. You can believe in spiritual deliverance, healing
