And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, (Mark:5:2)

Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: (Mark:5:3)

And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. (Mark:5:7)


Adjure — put on oath that is make swear; by analogy to solemnly enjoin.


The “Unclean Spirit” recognizes the, “Spirit of” the character Jesus.


The “s” in Son is capitalized for no apparent reason which means the word, “Son” should be understood as the “Spirit” of. The character Jesus is, in chapter five verse seven of the Gospel of Mark, the “Spirit of the most-high God.”


For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. (Mark:5:8)

Devils — (G1142) to distribute fortunes; a demon or supernatural spirit (of a bad nature): — devil.

Demon — evil spirit or devil, especially one thought to possess a person or act as a tormentor in hell.


The word, “Devils” has three reference numbers in the Gospel of Mark: G1139, G1140 and G1142.

G1142 is used only once: Chapter five verse twelve of the Gospel of Mark. These “Devils” are the type that, “Possess” or “Inhabit” a human or animal “Soul” or body.


And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea. (Mark:5:13)


And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done. (Mark:5:14)


Country — (G68) a field (as a drive for cattle); generally, the country; specifically, a farm that is hamlet: — country farm piece of ground land.


In verses one and ten of chapter five of the Gospel of Mark, the word, “Country” has the reference number G5561 which means it can be found in the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible in the Greek section under the number five thousand five hundred sixty-one.


In the Gospel of Mark chapter five verse fourteen, the word, “Country” has the reference number G68.

The author of the Gospel of Mark used two different Greek words to describe two different, “Situations.”


In verses one and ten, the author of the Gospel of Mark is referring to one “Man” with many “Unclean Spirits” in one human body.


In verse fourteen, the author of the Gospel of Mark is referring to a “Herd” of swine and a group of people in an “Area of Land.”


And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid. (Mark:5:15)

And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine. (Mark:5:16)


Befell — to cause to be (gen - erate) that is (reflexively) to become (come into being) used with great latitude (literally figuratively intensively etc.).


And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts. (Mark:5:17)


And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him. (Mark:5:18)


Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. (Mark:5:19)


And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel. (Mark:5:20)


Decapolis — the ten-city region; the Decapolis a district in Syria: — Decapolis.


In Google:


The Decapolis was a group of ten cities on the eastern frontier of the Roman Empire in the southeastern Levant in the first centuries BC and AD. They formed a group because of their language, culture, location, and political status, with each functioning as an autonomous city-state dependent on Rome. (Wikipedia)


The character Jesus told the man who had been possessed of the devil to go tell his friends how great things the “Lord” hath done for him, but the man told them what great things the character Jesus had done for him.


This is probably the only case where the word, “Lord” should be spelled with all capital letters, but it’s not.


Lord —(supremacy); supreme in authority that is (as noun) controller; by implication Mr. (as a respectful title): God Lord master Sir.


Because of the ambiguity of the Greek language, the word “Lord” could mean; controller; by implication Mr. (as a respectful title): God; Lord; master or Sir.


The phrase, “Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee,” in the Gospel of Mark chapter five verse nineteen, is referring to the “LORD God,” not the character Jesus.


Throughout the Gospel of Mark, every time the character Jesus tells someone to tell what, “God” or the “Lord” has done for them, they always tell what the character Jesus has done for them.


The character Jesus, at all times, points to God as being the one who has performed a miracle, not himself, which begs to question, could the author of the Gospel of Mark be trying to tell us that the character Jesus is both, a flesh and blood human, as well as, the “Lord?”


Matthew


And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. (Matthew:8:28)


The word, “Gergesenes” is used once in the New Testament of the Holy Bible. It is unique to the Gospel of Matthew, but is in several lists, in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible which means, “Two Men Possessed with Devils, Coming Out of the Tombs,” probably didn’t happen.


And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? (Matthew:8:29)


The phrase, “Before the time,” is unique to the Gospel of Matthew and 1 Corinthians which means devils probably didn’t say those words.


And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. (Matthew:8:30)


So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. (Matthew:8:31)


And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters. (Matthew:8:32)


And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils. (Matthew:8:33)


Possessed — to be exercised by a daemon: — have a (be vexed with be possessed with) devil (-s).


And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts. (Matthew:8:34)


Luke


And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee. (Luke:8:26)


In the Gospel of Mark:


And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. (Mark:5:1)


In the Gospel of Matthew:


And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. (Matthew:8:28)


And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city a certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs. (Luke:8:27)


In the Gospel of Mark:


And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, (Mark:5:2)


In typical, author, “Authors” or “Authorities” style, whoever wrote the Gospel of Luke added, “Details” that the authors of the Gospels of Mark and Matthew, “Totally Forgot.” Lol.


What’s interesting is how the unclean spirits in the Gospel of Mark, turned into a “Daemonic being; a deity, a “Devil god!”


When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not. (Luke:8:28)


(For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.) (Luke:8:29)


In the Gospel of Mark:


And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. (Mark:5:7)


In the Gospel of Matthew:


And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? (Matthew:8:29)


Whoever, “Fabricated” the Gospel of Luke, “Threaded the Needle” and “Sowed” a phrase, “What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not,” perfectly between what the authors of Mark and Matthew wrote, which is a “Pattern!”


The author, “Authors” or “Authorities” use this, “Tactic” frequently throughout the New Testament.


And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him. (Luke:8:30)


The word, “Devils,” as mentioned before, has three reference numbers, G1139, G1140 and G1142. In the Gospels of Mark and Matthew the authors use all three reference numbers to distinguish between devils, because all devils are not, “Created Equal.”


The “Worse” or the “Best,” depending on how you look at it, of the devils are the ones found under the reference number G1140: Devil god.


Another “Pattern” of whoever wrote the Gospel of Luke, is to install “Great Fear” in their audience. In all but one instance, where the word “Devils” is used in the Gospel of Luke the reference number is G1140….


And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep. (Luke:8:31)


In the Gospel of Mark:


And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. (Mark:5:10)


In the Gospel of Matthew:


So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. (Matthew:8:31)


The phrase, “Go out into the deep,” is unique to the Gospel of Luke which means the devils probably didn’t say those words.


And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them. (Luke:8:32)


Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked. (Luke:8:33)


In the Gospel of Mark:


“The whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea.” (Mark:5:13)


In the Gospel of Matthew:


“The whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea.” (Matthew:8:32)


When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled, and went and told it in the city and in the country. (Luke:8:34)


Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid. (Luke:8:35)


They also which saw it told them by what means he that was possessed of the devils was healed. (Luke:8:36)


Then the whole multitude of the country of the Gadarenes round about besought him to depart from them; for they were taken with great fear: and he went up into the ship, and returned back again. (Luke:8:37)


Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him that he might be with him: but Jesus sent him away, saying, (Luke:8:38)


Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him. (Luke:8:39)


In the Gospel of Mark:


Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. (Mark:5:19)


The author of the Gospel of Matthew doesn’t mention telling anyone, “How great things” anyone hath done for anyone!


The character Jesus tells the man to, “Shew how great things God hath done unto thee,” but the man goes, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him.”


In the Gospel of Luke, the author wrote, “Shew how great things God hath done unto thee,” which makes the comment about the Gospel of Mark chapter five verse nineteen correct, the “Lord” that the character Jesus was referring to, was the “LORD God,” not himself!
