After Yeshua cast out the demons and sent them to the pigs, the pigs run into the sea, and drowned. A very upset man then run up to where Yeshua was, and the following conversation ensued:
Man: Those were my pigs, magic man. I want my pigs back.
Yeshua: Sorry man, but your pigs have all just died.
Man: You’ve just destroyed my entire life’s work. I have no earthly possessions now.
Yeshua: Look at it this way: there are unlimited treasures waiting for you in heaven. Just be patient and kind while on earth, and you’ll get your own mansion in heaven.
Man: I don’t care about riches beyond the grave, magic man! I want my pigs NOW! Bring them back!
Yeshua: No can do. The deed is done. Besides, even if I brought the pigs back, they would all be full of the demons I’ve just cast into them. You wouldn’t like them.
Man: Why did you cast the demons into the pigs, instead of sending them straight to hell? Why have you impoverished me like this?
Yeshua: The demons requested me to cast them into the pigs.
Man: But why did you oblige them in that request? Why did you value the needs of the demons over my own needs, as the owner of the pigs?
Yeshua: I’ve just told you: there’s a fabulous mansion waiting for you in heaven. Forget about the damn pigs!
Man: I want my pigs back! I want my pigs back!
Yeshua (To his disciples): Peter, Bartholomew, Simon: get this heathen away from my face.
