Jesus Heals a Demon-Possessed Man
(Luke 8: 26-39)

Characters: Narrator, Village Person 1, 2, &3, Demons 1, 2, &3, Jesus, Man

Narrator: Jesus and his followers sailed to the region of the Gerasenes, which is across the lake from Galilee. When Jesus stepped ashore, he was met by a demon-possessed man from the town.

Village Person 1: Oh no, it’s the crazy guy.

Village Person 2: Yeah, he hasn’t worn clothes or lived in a house for a long time, but he’s been living in the graveyard.

Village Person 3: Even when he has been chained hand and foot and kept under guard, he has broken his chains and has been driven by the demon into places by himself.

Narrator: When the possessed man saw Jesus, he cried out and fell at his feet.

Demon 1: What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, don’t torture me!

Narrator: He said this because Jesus has commanded the demons to come out of the man.

Jesus: What is your name?

Demons 1, 2, and 3: Legion.

Narrator: They said Legion, because there were many demons in this man.

Demon 2: Please don’t send us into the Abyss!

Demon 3: Please send us into those pigs over there instead!!

Jesus: Very well, you have my permission to go into the pigs.

Narrator:  When the demons came out of the man, they went into the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned.

Village Person 1:  Wow, I’m going to go tell everyone else in the village what just happened!!

Man: Jesus, thank you for healing me!

Village Person 2: Wow, the demon-possessed man is now wearing clothes, and he’s not crazy any more!

Village Person 3: Jesus, please leave us!  We’re afraid!

Jesus:  Ok, I will leave then.

Man: Jesus, can I come with you?

Jesus: No, but go home and tell everyone how much God has done for you.

Man: I definitely will!

Narrator: Then Jesus left the town.
