Christian Owner’s Manual: Advice from and Acts of Jesus

Mark Chapter 5

What Jesus Said and DidA man with an evil spirit came to meet Jesus. The man lived in the tombs and cut himself.

Jesus asked his name. “My name is Legion, for we are many,” the man replied. The man then begged Jesus to send them into the herd of pigs, about 2000 in number. Jesus agreed and the pigs rushed down a steep hill and plunged into the lake where they drowned. Later, others came to see if what they had heard was true and found the man sitting with Jesus, dressed and in his right mind.

Afraid, the people begged Jesus to leave.

Go home to your family and tell them how much the Lord has done for you,” Jesus said to the man, “and how he has had mercy on you.” Mark 5:1-20 paraphrased
