    Do you have a theory? I have an answer to this question but want to see if anyone hits it first. It would appear cruel of Jesus to allow such a fate for the animals but He had a purpose in allowing the Devils to carry out their act. What was it?

    A demonstration of the power and authority of Jesus over the supernatural and a spectacle for the public to see how destructive demons can be to animals, and by extension to humans.

    "Have a theory?" Would that be the scientific use of "theory" or the more general cultural use of "theory"?

    I think the area was a Gentile city, but if it were Jews keeping the swine that could shed some light on it.

    I've suspected for some time now that He has a profound sense of humor. :)

    Were those people there Jews? (I don't know)

    If they were, why did they have a herd of pigs in the first place.

    Pigs are filthy and disgusting. What an excellent environment for demons.

    He may have done the lambs, but he couldn't take away that story line of dumb sheep.

    Answer

    Jesus allowed the devils to attack the pigs to reveal their intent on killing the demon possesed man and to show others their power and why His miracle was truly miraculous.
