                         "THE GOSPEL OF MARK"

                             Chapter Five

After calming the storm, Jesus and His disciples disembarked on the coast
of the Gadarenes (Gerasenes), located between the Jordan River and 
eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee (1). Jesus healed a man possessed and
tormented by a legion of demons, only to be begged by the residents to 
leave.  The man who was healed, however, went on to proclaim in Decapolis
all that Jesus had done (2-20).  Sailing over to the other side of the 
Sea, Jesus raised to life the daughter of Jairus, a ruler of the synagogue
(21-24,35-43), along the way healing a woman who suffered a flow of blood
for twelve years (25-34).
