Jesus crosses the lake to the country of the Gerasenes opposite Galilee. He is met by a man possessed by a legion of demons. Who is unable to live a normal, life and is as good as dead, living in the tombs. Jesus casts out the demons and they enter a herd of pigs. As a symbol of the destructiveness of the demons the pigs rush down the bank into the lake where they are drowned.
The man is returned to his right mind and is able to sit, unrestrained, with Jesus.
