Jesus Didn’t Love Her?

July 8, 2013

Remember the woman in Matthew 15:21-28? The one from Canaan who came to Jesus because of her sick daughter? Can you recall the attitude of the those who followed him closest? Just send her away! Get rid of her. She’s Gentile scum. 

Remember how Jesus rebuked her, calling her a dog? He even said that he was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel. 

If we read the Bible like many are doing today, we could stop there and proclaim that Jesus didn’t care about Gentiles. To him, they didn’t deserve the love, grace, and mercy he came to bring. We could ignore the countless other verses so plainly written that tell of how he came for all of us and we could preach this one. It is Biblical, you know….

Be careful not to fall into the trap of trying to prove a point and accept the Bible in it’s entirety. It might just surprise you.
