- Greek: daimonikos, possessed by a demon
A person possessed or controlled by a demon. Among the many miracles mentioned in the Gospels, special prominence is given to the casting-out of devils, or demons (Mark 5; 7; 9; Matthew 15; 17; Luke 11), which gave such a striking proof of a power above nature that the disciples seem to have been more impressed by this than by the other powers given them (Luke, 10).
