People's Bible Notes for Matthew 15:26


Mt 15:26 It is not meet to take the children's bread. She knew that, in comparing the Jews to the children of God's family, and the heathen to the dogs without, he simply used the customary language of a Jew. He would bring out fully the greatness of her faith. The gospel was offered first to the Jews and then to all.

    "The LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL" are not talking about the Jews.
    The Jews are the 2 tribes of the12 original HEBREW tribes that was separated from ISRAEL in a Civil War. The JEWS are the 2 tribes of JUDAH and BENJAMIN. They are refered to as "THE HOUSE OF JUDAH" in the prophecies. THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL are the 10 other tribes that was taken by the Assyrians.
