Last part: A storm on Lake Galilee

Mark chapter 5

Jesus in Gerasa

Verses 1-20

This man seemed strong and well. But his mind was very ill. He wore no clothes. He never seemed to sleep. He screamed often. He hurt himself. And he wanted to be with the bones of dead people.

Other people were afraid of him. They could not help him. They had tried often. But they always failed.

The manís problem was that bad *spirits had power over him. Those *spirits came from *Satan. The man could only do what the *spirits wanted him to do.

Then Jesus came. Immediately, the man knew who Jesus was. Jesus said that the bad *spirits had to leave the man. Those bad spirits were very cruel. They left the man, but they killed the pigs.

Immediately, the man was well again. His mind was well. He wanted Jesus to teach him. He quietly listened to Jesus.

But the other people were not happy. They were afraid. So they asked Jesus to go away. Jesus went away, but the man stayed in that country. Jesus told him to tell everyone about God. The man would tell them how kind God is.

Next part: Jairusís daughter and the ill woman
