on the one hand and the non-kosher spirits and the demons on the other side - no
one leaves the Gospel unscathed not even Peter - except the victor in whom the
spirit came and who gave the spirit back at the hour of death; through whom he
was also raised from the dead. That seems to be the reason of Mark's painting
with an unpleasant brush.
