The Gadarene demoniac (Mark 5:1-20) is the subject of a new post at Abiding Quaker patradallmann.com The following paragraph is an excerpt from the essay:
Because the man has not shirked or hidden the truth of his condition from himself, he is able to likewise see the Truth when it appears outwardly, “afar off.” Truth as it is in Jesus, he recognizes and runs to worship (6). The man’s openness to receiving Truth and Life – when he appears – is proportionate to his having consciously endured their prior absence. Though suffering, the man remained faithful to the truth.
