Preacher:  Pastor David Schultz


Matthew 15:21-28

21 Jesus went away from there and withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon.
22 And behold, a Canaanite woman from that region came out and was crying,
“Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely oppressed
by a demon.” 23 But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came and
begged him, saying, “Send her away, for she is crying out after us.” 24 He
answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” 25 But she
came and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, help me.” 26 And he answered, “It is
not right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” 27 She said,
“Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.”
28 Then Jesus answered her, “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you
as you desire.” And her daughter was healed instantly.
