The teachers of the law had a sinister agenda. By labelling Jesus as 'possessed' they were also trying to justify to the people what they were planning to do to him. This is a common tactic even today when authorities want to get away with hurting people. Our media is often complicit with policy makers in creating labels that dehumanise people with the explicit agenda of justifying institutional abuse. If I can convince you that someone is not like you and that they are less valuable than you, it then becomes reasonable for me to treat them without dignity. But our heavenly father has a new label for us also, the 'sons and daughters of God'.
