Local History: (The Roman Empire and Israel)
When he came to the other side, into the country of the Gergesenes,
Behold, they cried out, saying,
"What do we have to do with you, Jesus, Son of God?Now there was a herd of many pigs feeding far away from them.
The demons begged him, saying,
"If you cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of pigs."He said to them,
"Go!"They came out, and went into the herd of pigs:
and behold, the whole herd of pigs rushed down the cliff
into the sea, and died in the water.
Those who fed them fled, and went away into the city,
Behold, all the city came out to meet Jesus.
They came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
When he had come out of the boat, immediately a man with an unclean spirit met him out of the tombs.
He lived in the tombs.
Nobody could bind him any more, not even with chains,
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?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 on the mountainside there was 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
They came to Jesus, and saw him who had been possessed by demons
Those who saw it declared to them how it happened to him who was possessed by demons,
They began to beg him to depart from their region.
As he was entering into the boat,
He didn’t allow him, but said to him,
"Go to your house, to your friends, and tell them
He went his way, and began to proclaim in Decapolis
They arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is opposite Galilee.
When Jesus stepped ashore, a certain man out of the city who had demons for a long time met him. He wore no clothes, and didn’t live in a house, but in the tombs.
When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said,
"What do I have to do with you, Jesus, you Son of the Most High God?For Jesus was commanding the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For the unclean spirit had often seized the man. He was kept under guard, and bound with chains and fetters. Breaking the bands apart, he was driven by the demon into the desert.
Jesus asked him,
"What is your name?"He said,
"Legion,"for many demons had entered into him.
They begged him that he would not command them to go into the abyss.
Now there was there a herd of many pigs feeding on the mountain,
The demons came out from the man, and entered into the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake, and were drowned.
When those who fed them saw what had happened, they fled, and told it in the city and in the country.
People went out to see what had happened. They came to Jesus, and found the man from whom the demons had gone out, sitting at Jesus’ feet, clothed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.
Those who saw it told them how he who had been possessed by demons was healed.
All the people of the surrounding country of the Gadarenes asked him to depart from them, for they were very much afraid. He entered into the boat, and returned.
But the man from whom the demons had gone out begged him that he might go with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying,
"Return to your house, and declare what great things God has done for you."He went his way, proclaiming throughout the whole city what great things Jesus had done for him.
While he told these things to them, behold, a ruler came and worshiped him, saying,
"My daughter has just died, but come and lay your hand on her, and she will live."Jesus got up and followed him, as did his disciples.
Behold, a woman who had an issue of blood for twelve years came behind him, and touched the fringe of his garment;
for she said within herself,
"If I just touch his garment, I will be made well."But Jesus, turning around and seeing her, said,
"Daughter, cheer up! Your faith has made you well."And the woman was made well from that hour.
When Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the flute players, and the crowd in noisy disorder,
he said to them,
"Make room, because the girl isn’t dead, but sleeping."They were ridiculing him.
But when the crowd was put out, he entered in, took her by the hand, and the girl arose.
The report of this went out into all that land.
It happened, when Jesus returned, that the multitude welcomed him, for they were all waiting for him.
Behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue.
A woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years,
"Who touched me?"When all denied it, Peter and those with him said,
"Master, the multitudes press and jostle you, and you say,But Jesus said,'Who touched me?'"
"Someone did touch me, for I perceived that power has gone out of me."When the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling,
and falling down before him
declared to him in the presence of all the people
the reason why she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.
He said to her,
"Daughter, cheer up.While he still spoke, one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house came, saying to him,
"Your daughter is dead. Don’t trouble the Teacher."But Jesus hearing it, answered him,
except Peter, John, James, the father of the child, and her mother.
All were weeping and mourning her, but he said,
"Don’t weep. She isn’t dead, but sleeping."They were ridiculing him, knowing that she was dead.
But he put them all outside, and taking her by the hand, he called, saying,
"Child, arise!"Her spirit returned, and she rose up immediately. He commanded that something be given to her to eat.
Her parents were amazed, but he commanded them to tell no one what had been done.
When Jesus had crossed back over in the boat to the other side, a great multitude was gathered to him; and he was by the sea.
Behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, came; and seeing him, he fell at his feet,
"My little daughter is at the point of death. Please come and lay your hands on her, that she may be made healthy, and live."He went with him, and a great multitude followed him, and they pressed upon him on all sides.
A certain woman, who had an issue of blood for twelve years,
"If I just touch his clothes, I will be made well."
Immediately the flow of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.
Immediately Jesus, perceiving in himself that the power had gone out from him, turned around in the crowd, and asked,
"Who touched my clothes?"His disciples said to him,
"You see the multitude pressing against you, and you say,He looked around to see her who had done this thing.'Who touched me?'"
But the woman, fearing and trembling,
He said to her,
"Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be cured of your disease."While he was still speaking, people came from the synagogue ruler’s house saying,
"Your daughter is dead. Why bother the Teacher any more?"But Jesus, when he heard the message spoken, immediately said to the ruler of the synagogue,
"Don’t be afraid, only believe."He allowed no one to follow him, except Peter, James, and John the brother of James.
He came to the synagogue ruler’s house, and he saw an uproar, weeping, and great wailing.
When he had entered in, he said to them,
"Why do you make an uproar and weep?They ridiculed him.
But he, having put them all out,
Taking the child by the hand, he said to her,
"Talitha cumi!"which means, being interpreted,
"Girl, I tell you, get up!"Immediately the girl rose up and walked, for she was twelve years old.
They were amazed with great amazement.
He strictly ordered them that no one should know this, and commanded that something should be given to her to eat.
When he entered again into Capernaum after some days, it was heard that he was in the house.
Immediately many were gathered together, so that there was no more room, not even around the door; and he spoke the word to them.
Four people came, carrying a paralytic to him.
“Son, your sins are forgiven you.”
But there were some of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
"Why does this man speak blasphemies like that?Immediately Jesus, perceiving in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, said to them,
“Why do you reason these things in your hearts?— he said to the paralytic —
“I tell you, arise, take up your mat, and go to your house.”
He arose, and immediately took up the mat, and went out in front of them all; so that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying,
“We never saw anything like this!”
He entered into a boat, and crossed over, and came into his own city.
Behold, they brought to him a man who was paralyzed, lying on a bed.
"Son, cheer up! Your sins are forgiven you."Behold, some of the scribes said to themselves,
"This man blasphemes."Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said,
"Why do you think evil in your hearts?(then he said to the paralytic),
"Get up, and take up your mat, and go up to your house."
He arose and departed to his house.
It happened on one of those days, that he was teaching;
Behold, men brought a paralyzed man on a cot, and they sought to bring him in to lay before Jesus.
Not finding a way to bring him in because of the multitude, they went up to the housetop, and let him down through the tiles with his cot into the midst before Jesus.
Seeing their faith, he said to him,
"Man, your sins are forgiven you."The scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying,
"Who is this that speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?"But Jesus, perceiving their thoughts, answered them,
"Why are you reasoning so in your hearts?(he said to the paralyzed man),
"I tell you, arise, and take up your cot, and go to your house."
Immediately he rose up before them, and took up that which he was laying on, and departed to his house, glorifying God.
Amazement took hold on all, and they glorified God.
