Matthew 15:21-28 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

A Gentile’s faith in Jesus

21-22 Jesus left that place and retired into the Tyre and Sidon district. There a Canaanite woman from those parts came to him crying at the top of her voice, “Lord, have pity on me! My daughter is in a terrible state—a devil has got into her!”

(Tyre and Sidon are the cities where the Philistines who worshiped the fish-demi-god dogon.)

23 Jesus made no answer, and the disciples came up to him and said, “Do send her away—she’s still following us and calling out.”

24 “I was only sent,” replied Jesus, “to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

(It was meant to be, that the message would be spread from the Jews to Israel, because they were familiar with and  deeply devoted with the Scriptures already, The Synagogue was established. Then the Gospel (Message) was supposed to be spread to other descendants of Noah: Canaan and Japheth.  But it appeared that Yeshua was not always accepted by his own people. He was accepted  by other nationalities who found Yeshua amazing. The Gospels were spread all over the World.)

25 Then the woman came and knelt at his feet. “Lord, help me,” she said.

26 “It is not right, you know,” Jesus replied, “to take the children’s food and throw it to the dogs.”      

(Children’s Food = Biblical Food, which the Israelites as well as The Jews were deeply engaged with. The Philistine’s on the other hand were interested in the fish-demi-god dog-on.

Dogs = dogon-worshippers  = Philistines = it was  difficult to make them  worshiping The One and Only Good God our Creator and make them follow Yeshua’s teachings, but not impossible. So, it might mean, that it is not right to throw the Biblical-Food to the Dogons, because most of them are deeply devoted to the black Magics, to demi-gods, that troll them lots of fish.

27 Yes, Lord, I know, but even the dogs live on the scraps that fall from their master’s table!” (= even the “dogs” have the right to be saved, if they believe in Yeshua).

28 “You certainly don’t lack faith,” returned Jesus, “it shall be as you wish.” And at that moment her daughter was cured.

Now is it not amazing, that the woman who was not a Jew and nor an  Israelite, answered Yeshua also in parable, when Yeshua made a statement as a parable?  Both of them understood each other through parables!
