The Gospel for the Gerasenes.
In Mark 5:1-20 the gospel of the Kingdom of God confronts and conquers the demons who had possessed the Gerasene man. There were three responses to this confrontation. The demons told the truth about who Jesus was, many in the area were repelled by Jesus, however, and responded in fear, in favor of the status quo but the former demoniac responded in faith and confessed him to all who would listen.
