A photo of a statue resembling an angel holding a cross in a cemetery. The exorcism of the Gerasene demoniac happened in a burial site.


I have witnessed many exorcisms during my ministry of over twenty-five years, but none have been as horrifying as the exorcism described in the gospel of Matthew chapter 8 and repeated by Mark in chapter 5, and finally by Luke in chapter 8. It surpasses the terror of movies like The Exorcist, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, or any novel by Stephen King. It is far more terrifying than any other exorcism mentioned in the Bible. This is because it provides the most detailed account of a person possessed by demons.
