The story I picked and was very comparable in Mark 5:1-20, Matthew 8:28-9:1, and Luke 8:26-39. These are all the story of Jesus healing a Demoniac told in different part of the New Testament that agree and disagree on the events that took place. Mark and Luke use a lot more detail to make sure the story is accurately portrayed whereas Matthew just sums up the story and changes major points. Jesus performs this one of his three major miracles in time and makes a huge difference just like the Messiah
in their own destruction. When Jesus cast out Beelzebul, the people reportedly both marveled and questioned, creating a symbol of a revolutionary. Crossan also uses the Gerasene Demoniac as an example of how the people of the times, and stories within the Jesus tradition, represent a revolution. (However because the Gerasene Demoniac only has single attestation, Crossan only likes to use it for general background and not as a specific claim towards the historical Jesus).

We will then begin to look at the theological applications of this text to reveal the true heart of Christ toward the people of biblical times and today.
