Metaphysical meaning of Decapolis (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Decapolis (mbd)
Decapolis, de-cap'-o-lls (Gk.)--ten cities; ten cities (collectively).

A Roman district, partly in Syria and partly in Palestine, that contained ten cities (Matt. 4:25).

Meta. Decapolis means ten cities. A city represents a group of thoughts, or a thought center in consciousness. Mark 7: 3I says of Jesus, "And again he went out from the borders of Tyre, and came through Sidon unto the Sea of Galilee, through the midst of the borders of Decapolis." This journey was made just prior to His healing of a deaf man. Metaphysically interpreted the passage would mean that the I AM (Jesus) withdrew its attention from the outer centers (borders of Tyre) and concentrated upon the inner centers (the "midst" of the borders of Decapolis). These ten thought centers (Decapolis: ten cities) are of the soul, and when lined up by a developed mind exert great power.
