Luke 8: 26 – 39, Paraphrased for simplicity:
Jesus and His disciples crossed the sea of Galilee. They met a man with evil spirits, who lived in a cemetery. He screamed constantly and hurt himself with stones. Jesus told the spirits to leave. “Don’t hurt us Jesus!” The spirits cried. “My name is Lots, “said the man. “There are lots of evil spirits in me.”
“Well you have to leave him,” said Jesus. “You have no choice.” The evil spirits were scared. They were a large heard of pigs nearby. “Then send us into the pigs!”
Jesus let the evil spirits enter the pigs. The whole heard rushed down a steep bank into the lake and drowned! The people who took care of the pigs told every in town what happened. They townspeople came to the cemetery. They saw that Jesus had made the man well. Frightened, the people begged Jesus to leave.
The man asked to go with Jesus. Jesus replied, “stay here. Tell everyone what I’ve done. The man did, and everyone was amazed!”
