Understanding Jesus Ministry

Jesus works are full of compassion which many people in those days and even now do not really understand.

Many of us are selfish. We only look out for our own. Some people in those time were selfish and thought only of the Pigs they lost not the people that were healed. Others were just afraid of what will happen when they get near Jesus. They want to remain as they were.

They do that out of fear. Because if He could commanded evil spirit out of someone and send it to enter into a pig, they think if such a person is allowed between their midst, when get annoyed could do same to them.

Because the people were afraid and feared the power of God. They wanted Jesus to leave so that they could avoid what they didn`t understand or believe. Jesus left because He will not remain where He is not wanted.

After they saw what had happened to the madman and the pigs, they were scare of Jesus. The people of the country of Gadarenes did not know who Jesus was and assumed He was demon that drove the demons out of the madman. So they begged Jesus to leave their region.

I think that the people did not want Jesus in their region because they feared Him because of what He caused to happen to the pigs.

Why did the people ask Jesus to leave their region after they heard about the pigs?
The people asked Jesus to leave their region because they were marvelous of what happened to the demon possessed man. They saw the man who had demons sitting, clothed and in right mind. The people heard what happened to this man and to the pigs , this might be the reason why they were afraid that Jesus will do the same to them. It might be that they were also demon possessesd as it is legion and were afraid of another command from Jesus. Jesus ` lesson here is that we should learn to witness to our friends about the great things and mercies He has upon mankind. Amen!!

Because they feared Jesus just because of healing a demon possessed man and the mystry of pigs entering into the sea. This made so many people to fear and they feared that He might do another amazing thing within the region

The Healing of a Demon-possessed Man

They came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. When he had come out of the boat, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, who had his dwelling in the tombs. Nobody could bind him any more, not even with chains, because he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been torn apart by him, and the fetters broken in pieces. Nobody had the strength to tame him. Always, night and day, in the tombs and in the mountains, he was crying out, and cutting himself with stones. When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and bowed down to him, and crying out with a loud voice, he said, "What have I to do with you, Jesus, you Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, don't torment me." For he said to him, "Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!"
He asked him, "What is your name?"
He said to him, "My name is Legion, for we are many." He begged him much that he would not send them away out of the country. Now there was on the mountainside a great herd of pigs feeding. All the demons begged him, saying, "Send us into the pigs, that we may enter into them."
At once Jesus gave them permission. The unclean spirits came out and entered into the pigs. The herd of about two thousand rushed down the steep bank into the sea, and they were drowned in the sea. Those who fed them fled, and told it in the city and in the country.
The people came to see what it was that had happened. They came to Jesus, and saw him who had been possessed by demons sitting, clothed, and in his right mind, even him who had the legion; and they were afraid. Those who saw it declared to them how it happened to him who was possessed by demons, and about the pigs. They began to beg him to depart from their region.
As he was entering into the boat, he who had been possessed by demons begged him that he might be with him. He didn't allow him, but said to him, "Go to your house, to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how he had mercy on you."
He went his way, and began to proclaim in Decapolis how Jesus had done great things for him, and everyone marveled.
