Gadara

Additional Links

The district of Gadara bordered the Lake of Galilee on its eastern side and extended south into the territory known as Decapolis. Gadara was not so thickly populated as other districts around the lake, and was inhabited mainly by Gentiles, some of them pig farmers. The Gadarenes were known also as Gerasenes after the chief town of the district (Matthew 8:28; Mark 5:1; Mark 5:11-14). (For map and other details see DECAPOLIS.)
