Luke said that Jesus had commanded (παρήγγελλεν) the unclean spirit (γὰρ τῷ πνεύματι τῷ ἀκαθάρτῳ) to come out of this man (ἐξελθεῖν ἀπὸ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου). Many times (πολλοῖς γὰρ χρόνοις), it had seized him (συνηρπάκει αὐτόν). Thus, he was bound with chains (καὶ ἐδεσμεύετο ἁλύσεσιν) and kept in foot shackles (καὶ πέδαις φυλασσόμενος). However, he would break the chains or bonds (καὶ διαρήσσων τὰ δεσμὰ). He was driven (ἠλαύνετο) by a demon (ἀπὸ τοῦ δαιμονίου) into the wild desert (εἰς τὰς ἐρήμους). Here in Luke, Jesus commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the demoniac. Mark, chapter 5:8, also indicated that Jesus said to the demoniac that this unclean spirit should come out of this man. Thus, Jesus spoke directly to the unclean spirit here also. While Matthew, chapter 8:28, just said that these possessed men were wild people, Mark, chapter 5:4-5, had an elaborate description much like this in Luke. Mark said that this demoniac had often been bound or restrained with foot shackles and chains. However, he tore up these chains and shattered his foot shackles into pieces. No one had the strength to subdue him. Constantly, all night and day, he was howling or crying among the tombs and on the hills or in the mountains. He was cutting or bruising himself with stones. This was not a pretty sight or a happy guy. Have you ever met a crazy possessed person?
This is very similar, almost word for word, to Mark, chapter 1:25-26. Luke said that Jesus rebuked the evil spirit (καὶ ἐπετίμησεν αὐτῷ ὁ Ἰησοῦς). Rebuking was a common Hebrew term used in exorcisms, while in Greek it has a more English sense of warning, chiding, or admonishing. Jesus told him to be silent (λέγων Φιμώθητι), so that the unclean or evil spirit could come out of that person (καὶ ἔξελθε ἀπ’αὐτοῦ). Then Luke had an explanation about how the unclean spirit left this person unharmed. The demon threw him down (καὶ ῥίψαν αὐτὸν τὸ δαιμόνιον) in the midst (εἰς τὸ μέσον) of everyone there. Then the evil spirit came out of him (ἐξῆλθεν ἀπ’ αὐτοῦ) without having done any harm to him (μηδὲν βλάψαν αὐτόν). Mark said that the unclean spirit convulsed this person, so that crying with a great loud voice, he came out of that one person. Thus, the exorcism was complete
Luke indicated that the people praying in the Temple, outside the sanctuary, were surprised when Zechariah finally came out (ἐξελθὼν δὲ) of the sanctuary. They saw that Zechariah could not speak to them (οὐκ ἐδύνατο λαλῆσαι αὐτοῖς) or give his blessing. They realized or recognized (καὶ ἐπέγνωσαν) that he had seen a vision or had a supernatural experience (ὅτι ὀπτασίαν ἑώρακεν) while he was in the sanctuary (ἐν τῷ ναῷ). Zechariah kept motioning or making signs to them (καὶ αὐτὸς ἦν διανεύων αὐτοῖς). However, he could not communicate with them, since he was unable to speak as he remained mute (καὶ διέμενεν κωφός).
This is almost word for word in Matthew, chapter 26:55. In Luke, chapter 22:52-53, there is something similar, while John, chapter 18, does not have anything like this. Mark indicated that Jesus finally responded to those arresting him (καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς). He wanted to know why they had come out with swords and clubs to capture or arrest him (ἐξήλθατε μετὰ μαχαιρῶν καὶ ξύλων συλλαβεῖν με), as though he was a bandit or robber (Ὡς ἐπὶ λῃστὴν)? Why was it that he had suddenly become like a robber or bandit, when he had been teaching openly in many synagogues?
This is unique to Mark. When Jesus saw that a crowd came running together (ἰδὼν δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς ὅτι ἐπισυντρέχει ὄχλος), he rebuked the unclean spirit (ἐπετίμησεν τῷ πνεύματι τῷ ἀκαθάρτῳ). He spoke directly to this evil spirit (λέγων αὐτῷ) as he commanded, in the first person singular, this unclean spirit (ἐγὼ ἐπιτάσσω σοι), in the second person “you”. This evil spirit had kept this boy from speaking and hearing. This mute and deaf spirit (Τὸ ἄλαλον καὶ κωφὸν πνεῦμα,), was to come out of him (ἔξελθε ἐξ αὐτοῦ), never again to enter him (καὶ μηκέτι εἰσέλθῃς εἰς αὐτόν). Jesus then got rid of the unclean spirit that was in this boy in a public act in front of a crowd.
A similar response can be found in Matthew, chapter 15:28. There was no mention of faith here as there was in Matthew. Mark said that Jesus answered her (καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ). Jesus said that she had by her words accepted her position as a dog under the table, so that she could go home (Διὰ τοῦτον τὸν λόγον ὕπαγε). Jesus said that the demon had come out of her daughter (ἐξελήλυθεν ἐκ τῆς θυγατρός σου τὸ δαιμόνιον). Thus, she then went away from Jesus to her home (καὶ ἀπελθοῦσα εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτῆς). There she found that her child was lying in bed (εὗρεν τὸ παιδίον βεβλημένον ἐπὶ τὴν κλίνην), but the demon was gone or expelled from her (καὶ τὸ δαιμόνιον ἐξεληλυθός). Despite the reluctance of Jesus to go outside of the Israelites, this Canaanite woman persuaded him to cure her daughter of her demonic illness. Jesus cured her child without touching her or being in her presence.
There is something similar to this in Matthew, chapter 15:11. Mark indicated that Jesus went back to the problem of impurity, unclean or defiled people. Thus, spiritual purity was more important than physical purity. Jesus said that that there was nothing from the outside of a person (οὐδέν ἐστιν ἔξωθεν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου) that could enter into him that was able to defile him (εἰσπορευόμενον εἰς αὐτὸν ὃ δύναται κοινῶσαι αὐτόν). Rather, it is what comes out bursting forth from a person (ἀλλὰ τὰ ἐκ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐκπορευόμενά) that defiles, pollutes or makes a man or person unclean (ἐστιν τὰ κοινοῦντα τὸν ἄνθρωπον). It is not what you put into your mouth that makes you unclean, it is what comes out of your mouth that makes you unclean or defiled.
This is similar to Luke, chapter 8:29. However, in Luke, Jesus commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the demoniac. Here, Mark indicated that Jesus said to the demoniac (ἔλεγεν γὰρ αὐτῷ) that this unclean spirit should come out (Ἔξελθε τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ ἀκάθαρτον) of that man (ἐκ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου). Thus, Jesus also spoke directly to the unclean spirit here also.
This is very similar, almost word for word, to Luke, chapter 4:35, but as usual, Luke had more details. Both Mark and Luke said that Jesus rebuked him (καὶ ἐπετίμησεν αὐτῷ ὁ Ἰησοῦς). Rebuking was a common Hebrew term used in exorcisms, while in Greek it has a more English sense of warning, chiding, or admonishing. Jesus told him to be silent or muzzled (Φιμώθητι), so that the unclean or evil spirit could come out of that person (καὶ ἔξελθε ἐξ αὐτοῦ). Then Luke had an explanation about how the unclean spirit left these people unharmed. Luke continued to have two persons, while Mark only had one person. Here Mark said that that the unclean spirit convulsed this person (καὶ σπαράξαν αὐτὸν τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ ἀκάθαρτον), so that crying with a great loud voice (καὶ φωνῆσαν φωνῇ μεγάλῃ) he came out of that one person (ἐξῆλθεν ἐξ αὐτοῦ). Thus, the exorcism was complete.
King Nebuchadnezzar had a change of heart. He went to the door of the fiery furnace. He then told the 3 men in the furnace, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in their Babylonian names, to come out of the furnace. He also called them the servants of the Most High God. Thus, the 3 men came out of the fiery furnace.
