Hello Everyone –
What a text we have to preach together this Sunday – Mark 7:24-37. Jesus heads into Gentile territory, where a couple things happen, including this:
“…a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit immediately heard about Jesus, and she came and bowed down at his feet. 26 Now the woman was a Gentile, of Syrophoenician origin. She begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter. 27 Jesus said to her, “Let the children be fed first, for it is not fair to take the children’s food and throw it to the dogs.” 28 But she answered him, “Sir, even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”
Wait a minute! Did Jesus just call this woman a dog?
Does this sound like the Jesus we know and love?
What was he thinking?!
We have lots to talk about this Sunday!
Hope to see you in worship!
Be the church!
