TOMBSTONE TERRITORY (5 OF 17)
This summer we are in a series of studies on the
miracles of the Lord Jesus. When Jesus was on the
earth He did miracles and here is one of the most
remarkable of them all.
Some have referred to Mark 5 as the Bible home for
incurables. In this chapter there are three
individuals, all of whom would be considered

the Great Pediatrician.
It's always interesting to look at what goes before a
passage of Scripture and when you look back in chapter
4 you will find that chapter closes with the Lord
Jesus calming a storm upon the sea. It was a miracle
indeed when Jesus calmed the storm, but it is an even
greater miracle when the Lord Jesus ...
