NET © Notes

tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

sn The name Legion means “thousands,” a word taken from a Latin term for a large group of soldiers. The term not only suggests a multiple possession, but also adds a military feel to the account. This is a true battle.
