The Canaanite Woman (The Cure for Uncleanness) - Part 18b

Summary: Jesus leaves the Holy land and goes to Unclean-land. An (unclean) Canaanite asks for help and He keeps throwing down obstacles to expose her great faith. When her faith is shown genuine, He praises her and grants her the “bread” she requests. He faith was great because she assumed Jesus could help her without neglecting the Disciples (could cast out the demon with a thought). Jesus’ mysterious comment about being sent only to Israel is the first hint that later develops to show a shift in the definition of Israel that would include Gentiles.
