I heard a preacher speaking on the maniac of Gadara who said that the part of the story most over looked is the Jews who were herding swine on the hillside. The Jews loved thier 'sinful' occupations so much that they literally asked Jesus to leave them!! This after he had purged the area of a menace! Is it true that the Jews were herding the swine, or is it more likely that the local 'barbarians' were the ones who asked Jesus to leave? Is the premise Sad but true? or False? What do you think?
