know his voice - healing

Today's Know His Voice readings deal with one of the most dynamic stories in the Gospels, the healing of the demon-possessed man in the country of the Gerasenes: Matthew 8:28-34, Luke 8:26-39, and Mark 5:1-20. Notice how Matthew's account mentions two possessed men, not just one. This is characteristic of Matthew's Gospel; things happen in pairs there, with the word "two" appearing nearly forty times.
