  • If you are referring to the swine that Jesus sent the demons into... Matthew 8:30

  • Matthew 8:25 starts the parable that is referenced above and ends in verse 40. Also Mark 5:1-16.

    A man was possessed by many demons ("Legion, for we are many") and Jesus sent them into the swine who ran into the sea and drowned. The man was cured and was mentally stable. It was a testimony to the many who knew the man while he was in a psychotic state.
