The Authority of Jesus Vs Satan

Jesus now enters into something new, the casting out of a demon-possessed man. Jesus shows us His authority and power in a mighty way in our passages today.

And Mark’s purpose is to demonstrate to us what is essential if we are to accept Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as the new king … as God’s Messiah. He must exercise power over the current ruler of this world. He must be able to break the bondage that Satan holds and that demons hold over the souls of sinners.

And there will be more to come in the rest of this chapter and in subsequent chapters leaving no doubt in anyone’s mind about His power to break the bondage of Satan that holds sinners captive and carries them all the way to hell.
