And suddenly they cried out, saying, “What have we to do with You, Jesus, You Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?”
Now a good way off from them there was a herd of many swine feeding. So the demons begged Him, saying, “If You cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of swine.”
And He said to them, “Go.” So when they had come out, they went into the herd of swine. And suddenly the whole herd of swine ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and perished in the water.

Jesus preached on casting out demons all the time. One-third of what Jesus preached on was the works of Satan, and casting out devils. Yet, today, we only hear about "grammar and context" from the pulpit. We see rock bands having "altar calls". But, repentance, faith, and power are hardly mentioned. Gospel of salvation, yes. Gospel of the Kingdom, rarely.
