    Let us check and compare : St Matthew 15 : 21 28 St Mark 7 : 24 30

  • St Luke + St Marknot be hidden.25For a woman of Canaan (The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth) whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed." 23 But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, "Send her away, for she cries out after us." 24 But He answered and said, "I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." 25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, help me!" 26 But He answered and said, "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs." 27 And she said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. 21 Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And He entered a house and wanted no one to knowit, but He could

  • 28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire." "For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter. And her daughter was healed from that very hour. 29 Jesus departed from there, skirted the Sea of Galilee

  • What do you think ?Would you expect that answer from Jesus ?Do you think that Jesus words were harsh and unjustifiable ?Western Christians go far to the extend that they deny that Jesus said this ....!!!!

And He entered a house and wanted no one to knowit,but He could not be hidden. 29 Jesus departed from there, skirted the Sea of Galilee

  • but He could not be hidden.25For a woman of Canaan (The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth) whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David!

  • First What is the meaning of a Canaanite woman ?She was living in Sidon and TyerWho was the god of the people of Sidon & Tyer?How they used to worship their god Baal ?

  • The Jewish encyclopaediaand Encyclopaedia Britannica!The degradation ofYhwh.Further, there was placed side by side with the Ba'al a corresponding female symbol, theAshtoreth. They were made the symbols of the reproductive powers of nature, and thus their worship ministered to sexual indulgences, which it at the same time legalized and encouraged.People attempted to influence the gods through animalsacrifices, petitions, and vows. Domestic animals were the main victimscattle, sheep, and goatsand also birds, and also child sacrifice (2Kings 3:2627 ) .

  • Give a description to the canaanite worship ?What was the symbol of impurity in the Old Testement , or till no for any Jewish man?So now what about the childrens bread ? Did the canaanite woman asked for the childrens bread ?What was she asking for ?

  • Now .Was Jesus words harsh to the Canaanite woman ? And unjustifiable ?
