People's Bible Notes for Matthew 15:27


Mt 15:27 Truth, Lord. Observe that she acquiesces heartily in Christ's declaration: it is not fit that the dogs be fed "before" the children. Yet the dogs eat of the crumbs. The Greek word for "crumbs", "psichion", is a diminutive, and means "little crumbs".
