Mark 5:5-13 (NASB):
5 Constantly, night and day, he was screaming among the tombs and in the mountains, and cutting himself with stones. 6 Seeing Jesus from a distance, he ran up and bowed down before Him; 7 and shouting with a loud voice, he *said, “What business do You have with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God, do not torment me!” 8 For He had already been saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!” 9 And He was asking him, “What is your name?” And he *said to Him, “My name is Legion, for we are many.” 10 And he begged Him earnestly not to send them out of the region. 11 Now there was a large herd of pigs feeding nearby on the mountain. 12 And the demons begged Him, saying, “Send us into the pigs so that we may enter them.” 13 Jesus gave them permission. And coming out, the unclean spirits entered the pigs; and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea, about two thousand of them; and they were drowned in the sea.
In this story, we have a demon-possessed Gadarene who saw Jesus from a distance, and immediately he appeared to have felt a strong compulsion to run up to Jesus and bow down before him. And when the man spoke to Jesus, it looks like the demons inside the man were the ones doing the speaking. They even recognized him as Jesus, Son of the Most High God (verse 7).
Question: Why did the demon-possessed Gadarene feel the sudden urge to run up to Jesus and bow down before him when he saw him from afar? Were the demons inside the ones who caused him to do this? And how did the man (or the demons inside the man) know that he was Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Where did the man (or the demons inside) get this information from?
