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.

This is because it provides the most detailed account of a person possessed by demons.

The sea of Galilee is actually a vast lake (166 Km2) surrounded by a ring of mountains.

This condition still exists to this day and the local fishermen exercise plenty of caution.
