When the demons jumped off the cliff with the pigs.

Should Jesus have handled that situation better?

1. pigs were considered "unclean" in that region

no jew, or arab, or syrian, or persian, or egyptian would have had a herd of pigs. greeks and romans, in the 1st century levant, were merchants and warriors. they might have had herds of horses, but never farm animals.

2. Yeah. That Was My Take.

The pigs were feral, so killing them didn't cause economic hardship for anyone.
