"When Yeshua arrived on the other side of the Lake in the land of the Gergesenes (Hebrew, Kursi), two men who were possessed by demons met him.  They lived in a cemetery and were so dangerous that no one could go through the area." (Matthew 8:28)

“And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed” (Mark 5:20).  So this gentile man becomes the first person commissioned by Jesus to spread the Good News to non-Jews.

Three Gospels tell the story: Jesus steps out of a boat after crossing the lake and is confronted by a man possessed by demons. When Jesus orders the demons to leave the man, they beg to be allowed to enter a herd of swine grazing nearby. Jesus agrees, and the swine — numbering about 2000 — rush down a bank into the water and are drowned. (Luke 8:26-39; Mark 5:1-20; Matthew 8:28-34)
