Note: This event is recorded in three of the gospels (Matt 8:26-34; Mark 5:1-20; Luke 8:26-39). Matthew is the only one that records two men possessed but with less detail of the possession and interaction with Jesus. Mark and Luke focus on one of the possessed and details the effects of the possession and the demons' interaction with Jesus.
