Luke 8:26-56

This crazy man who breaks chains and lives in graveyards may be the most frightening person in the whole Bible. The ending is great. The townspeople find this man sitting there talking to Jesus in his right mind. So, they ask Jesus to leave. Jesus tells him to go to his family and next thing you know he's preaching to the whole area. What would it be like to be refused by Jesus like this man was. Hmmm.

Jairus was the ruler of the synagogue. I wonder what it did to their synagogue to have Jesus raise his daughter from the dead? These parents apparently kept it low key as Jesus asked them to. Not very many people did.
