People's Bible Notes for Matthew 15:28


Mt 15:28 Woman, great [is] thy faith. We can see how greatness of faith is manifested: (1) She came to Christ under difficulties. (2) She persevered when her prayer seemed to be denied. (3) She still pleaded when obstacles were presented. (4) She waited at the feet of the Lord until he had mercy. Such faith always prevails. Her daughter was made whole. Mark, who adds some features omitted by Matthew, follows the woman home, where she found her daughter no longer raving, or in convulsions, but lying quiet on the bed, healed in consequence of her mother's faith and prayers (Mr 7:30).

Discussion for Matthew 15

    Jesus referred to dogs because dogs faithfully follow their master regardless of what their master thinks. Some masters take advantage of dogs loyalty, these dog fighters beat the dogs until they learn to fight, to death so that they can turn a profit from the fight. Jesus knew that the woman asking for help was not his follower, her beliefs were not what Jesus taught yet she converted to truth.

    Jo Ann, talk to the Holy Ghost and ask for clarity of scriptures. We are told to do so. And He will show you the word. He will not put you down for your lack of understanding but will lift you up. He is our Comforter.

    i think i can help! try this::So you have made the word of God invalid because of your tradition. 7 You hypocrites, Isaiah aptly prophesied about you when he said: 8 ˜This people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far removed from me. 9 It is in vain that they keep worshiping me, for they teach commands of men as doctrines.

    Do not try so hard, but pray about the passage that worries you. Sometimes, we are not ready to understand and sometimes you have to take what is written by faith, until the time is right for you to understand. It is in God's time, not ours. Be kind to yourself and trust in our Lord.
  • Jo-An
