- Does evil exist? What about demons and the devil? Have you ever experienced evil perpetrated against yourself?
- Do people still get posessed? If not, how else can we explain their erratic behaviour?
- Why does God permit evil to exist, or the devil for that matter?
- In scriptures what is the goal of the demonic forces?
- How did Jesus approach His encounters with the demonic? How did the demons react to Him?
- Why did Jesus command the unclean spirit to be silent? Why did it obey?
- What lessons can we learn from the location of this story? (The synagogue.)
- How does God want us to respond to the evil around us? What evils do you see in our community?
- Are people amazed by how Christ is working through us? If not, why not?
- So, in conclusion: what are we to make of this passage, and its depictions of demons and evil?
