Notes: This miracle occurred late on the same day as the "unpardonable sin" and the teaching of the Kingdom parables (Mark 4:35).
Notes: As the boat carrying the apostles and Jesus arrived on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee, Jesus encountered this Gadarene man, delivered him of his demon possession.
Questions/Observations: There is a perceived contradiction between Mark's geographic reference (the country of the Gadarenes) and that of Matthew (country of the Gergesenes). Can you propose a way to reconcile these accounts?
