The Faith of the Canaaite Woman

Jesus answered, "It is not fair to take the children's food and throw it to the dogs."

The woman said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table."

Then Jesus answered her, "Woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish." And her daughter was healed instantly. Matthew 15: 21-28

What is going on here? Is it shocking to think that Jesus might have changed his mind? Why does she call him Lord? Is she a Christian? She's pretty quick to the party if she is one. At the very least there is something about persistence here. Join us as we think about this strange passage: Tuesday 11/8/20 from 7pm (more serious bit starts at 8)) via Zoom
