Judges 3:10-11

''The Breath of Yahweh took control of Othniel, and he led Israel in a war against Cushan Rishathaim. Yahweh gave Othniel victory, and Israel was at peace until Othniel died about forty years later.'' Judges 3:10-11

Judges is often referred to as a history of Israel's wars with its neighbors. It addresses the cycles of how Israel would fall away from Yahweh, be attacked by invaders, and Yahweh would raise up a ''judge'' to deliver Israel. We fail to recognize that the point in all of this was not Yahweh's desire for war. The point was teaching Israel how to live in peace.

Mark 5:16-17

''Everyone who had seen what had happened told about the man and the pigs. Then the people started begging Jesus to leave their part of the country.'' Mark 5:16-17

Ever had too much of a good thing? Ever had something good make you uncomfortable? That is kind of the way the people in Gadara were looking at Jesus. He had worked a miracle among them, but with that one action they had had enough. They weren't sure what to do with him, and they wanted him to keep walking so as not to interfere with life as they knew it.
