I heard Jesus put demons in some pigs! What’s that about?
Here's the answer:
After Jesus healed a man from demon-possession, He put the demons into pigs.
There was a man Jesus met during His ministry. This man suffered from being possessed by a legion of demons. A legion consists of many thousands of demons. The demons caused the man to cut and hurt himself. When Jesus came to the man, He helped the man by casting the demons out of the man.
The demons begged Jesus to send them into the nearby herd of pigs. Jesus does cast them into the pigs and then the pigs run into the lake where they drown.
The Bible does not tell us why Jesus sent the demons into the pigs. What we can know is that this story shows us Jesus is God and Jesus has power over all things. The demons were afraid and listened to Jesus. Jesus is mightier, stronger, and bigger than anything—including demons.
"When Jesus stepped on shore, he was met by a man from the town. The man was controlled by demons. For a long time he had not worn clothes or lived in a house. He lived in the tombs" (Luke 8:27).
"The demons begged Jesus, 'If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs'" (Matthew 8:31).
"Jesus said to them, 'Go!' So the demons came out of the men and went into the pigs. The whole herd rushed down the steep bank" (Matthew 8:32).
