Interpretations of scripture often don't agree.
The problem is that I'm not interpreting scripture. You are.
I'm simply letting scripture say exactly what it says.
It is the fruit of the interpretation that illuminates its source.
Yet He healed the woman.
Just as He heals Gentiles today.
Your ignorance of scripture is showing. ("fruit of interpretation" much?) It wasn't the woman who needed healing. It was her daughter who was "severely demon-possessed."
And guess what, He didn't even want to interact with the woman, let alone heal her daughter.
First, He completely ignored her cries.
Then He told His disciples, who asked that He send her away, "I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." He didn't even want to talk to her, because His mission was ONLY to the Jews.
Even when she began to worship Him, He basically insulted her by calling her a dog, saying "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs." Dog, being a derogatory term for Gentiles, and the children being Israel, the bread being His message.
It was ONLY AFTER she showed her faith in verse 27 that Jesus finally gave in and healed her daughter.
Saying "Yet He healed the woman['s daughter]" doesn't give the full picture, and glosses over the fact that Jesus wanted nothing to do with the Gentiles, because His mission was to gather His children as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. (Matthew 23:37)
He came seeking fruit from Israel for three years, but found none, so He cut off Israel and grafted in the Body of Christ. (Luke 13 6-9; Romans 11:11-32)
I am so glad I got grafted into the Branch known as Jesus when I was baptized into Him and into His death and burial.
Jesus isn't the branch (in this context). He is the Vine, that which the branches grow out of. Unbelieving Israel was cut off from Christ, and the Body of Christ was grafted in.
Isn't talking about water baptism.
And raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Rom 6:4)
Which doesn't mean that you're incapable of sinning.
The result is written of in Rom 6:7.
1 Corinthians 10:12-13
Thanks be to God.
