People's Bible Notes for Matthew 8:34


Mt 8:34 The whole city came out to meet Jesus. Filled with wonder and fear by the story. Besought [him] that he would depart. Partly from awe of one with such power; partly, perhaps, from fear of loss of more property. The Lord, bidden to depart, never returned. In this fact is a significant lesson. Mark tells us that the healed demoniac became a preacher of Christ in his own country (Mr 5:18-20).
