Title: The Faith of a Gentile Woman

The Faith of a GentileWoman
2
The more I studied Jesus the more difficult it
became to pigeonhole him. He said little about
the Roman occupation, the main topic of
conversation amongst his countrymen, yet he took
up a whip to drive out petty profiteers from the
Jewish Temple. He urged obedience to the Mosaic
Law while acquiring the reputation as a law
breaker. He could be stabbed by sympathy for a
stranger, yet turn on his best friend with the
rebuke, Get behind me, Satan. He had
uncompromising views on rich men and loose women,
yet both types enjoyed his company.Philip
YanceyThe Jesus I Never Knew.

  • Mark 724-30
  • The Faith of a Gentile Woman
  • Then Jesus left Galilee and went north to the
    region of Tyre.
  • He didnt want anyone to know which house he was
    staying in, but he couldnt keep it a secret. 
  •  Right away a woman who had heard about him came
    and fell at his feet. Her little girl was
    possessed by an evil spirit,  and she begged him
    to cast out the demon from her daughter. Since
    she was a Gentile, born in Syrian Phoenicia,

  • Mark 724-30
  • The Faith of a Gentile Woman
  • Jesus told her, First I should feed the
    childrenmy own family, the Jews. It isnt right
    to take food from the children and throw it to
    the dogs.
  •  She replied, Thats true, Lord, but even the
    dogs under the table are allowed to eat the
    scraps from the childrens plates.
  •  Good answer! he said. Now go home, for the
    demon has left your daughter.  And when she
    arrived home, she found her little girl lying
    quietly in bed, and the demon was gone.
