In our reading today Mark shows us a picture of Jesus that should blow us away! For Jesus casted out a legion of demons, healed a woman suffering for 12 years, and raised a little girl from the dead! The most asked question about this chapter is often related to demon possession. Brother Coffman made this statement: “Demon possession may not be identified merely as mental disorders, or various kinds of sickness, because a differentiation between them is clearly made in the gospels. Furthermore, the conversations Jesus carried on with demons, their recognizing him as ‘Son of God Most High,’ and his addressing them as personal cannot be adequately explained as a mere accommodation on the part of the Lord to superstitions of his contemporary generation. The integrity of the sacred gospels as history must be set aside in any view that denies the reality of demon possession in the New Testament.” (Coffman’s Bible Commentary) Would you agree or disagree and why?
