People's Bible Notes for Matthew 8:32


Mt 8:32 Go. Permission, not a command. Ran violently . . . into the sea. Maddened, the swine rushed down the steep declivity into the sea. If we knew all the facts we would see more fully the righteousness of the Lord's permission. Perhaps the loss of the swine was a punishment. Perhaps it was to show that evil works its own destruction.
