    Wow – you made some interesting observations, here.

    One thing you mentioned that I hadn’t considered was the (possible) fear of the people that ‘more of their pigs would die.’ You know, under Jewish dietary laws, pork was an unclean meat – not allowable for eating. So, that would indicate (to me, at least) that people in the region called the ‘Gadarenes’ were not of Hebrew descent. So, perhaps, they were frightened of this strange Jewish man who invaded their shore and killed their pigs.
