"They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him" (Mark 5:1-2).
In Jesus' day, a great divide existed between the Jews and the Gentiles. The Jews considered themselves to be on one side--on God's side--and the Gentiles to be on the other. But time and again in Scripture, we find Yeshua Jesus traveling to the "other side" to meet with broken, lost, and desperate souls who needed God's grace. He crossed to other side when Peter, the disciple who promised to never forsake Him, did just that on the night that He was arrested. He literally crossed to the other side of the Sea of Galilee to find a man in the region of the Gerasenes, casting out a legion of demons from him and into a horde of pigs. Jesus went out of His way to meet with a woman from Samaria and told a parable of a Prodigal Son to demonstrate that no one is ever too far from God. Jesus then encouraged His faithful followers to take up the call to journey to the other side--as evidenced by Peter's willingness to meet with a Gentile named Cornelius and even stay in his home.
In this six-session video Bible study, bestselling author Kathie Lee Gifford explores the stories of these important figures in Scripture who were willing to take the gospel to "the other side" so that all might learn of God's plan of salvation. Participants will discover that they are never too far gone or too far out of reach for God to find them, minister to them, and heal them. They will also be encouraged to follow the example of Yeshua Jesus and meet with those who are hurting . . . right where they are.
