People's Bible Notes for Mark 5:30


Mr 5:30 Knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him. Christ, conscious of the approach and condition of this woman, voluntarily healed her. His language that follows is to bring out the moral issue. He cured her, not by touch or word, as was usual with him, but by act of will. By his question he called out her public confession. Faith saves. It may not be intelligent faith, for this woman was not well instructed, but is a faith strong enough to lead to action.

Discussion for Mark 5

  • A disciple
    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
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Are you laden with sickness in body or in soul? Come onto Jesus who has power to heal all infirmities and sin-sick souls. He did all the casting out of the devil when He was man on earth. He is the same today and evermore shall be.

    Hello Irene123, and Lu2677. Irene the scripture you are referring to is in Matt. 25:41 which prove that everlasting fire or the lake of fire was prepared for the Devil and his angels. Lu2627 Matthew Henry's commentary said a legion was 6000 or more therefore, that poor man was in a hopeless situation until Jesus healed him. Glory be to God in the highest. Amen!

    This chapter shows Jesus' immense power over the demons, illness, and even death. He is definitely the idea king we need to change this terrible world.
