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).

    When I was 18 I had had scoliosis for 2 yrs. I am 75 now. At 18 my left hip was 4 in. higher than my right; my spine was a backward 'S'. In June of '60 the Lord healed me, but I didn't know it was Him for 10 yrs. In '60 I had 'heard' there was a God; that was about it. I 'learned' that much in a mainstream church. So, Jesus does heal without OUR prayers, but I KNOW someone was praying for me.

    Insight777: This is just to help you understand the right meaning of Matthew15:26NIV. "It's not right to take the childrens bread and toss it to their dogs."CHILDREN meansJews. BREAD means the word of God. DOGS means.Gentiles."We" were/are considered unclean to Jews..Jesus wasn't calling her a dog,being mean.He talked to her in a way she could understand.With her answer he was moved,and so healed.

    Im just trying to help you understand the right meaning of Matthew15:26 NIV "It is not right to take the childrens(Jews) bread (Word of God)and toss it to their dogs." (Gentiles) 24:" I have only been sent to the lost sheep of Israel." He was trying to save HIS "lost sheep" first. When the woman gave her reply,jesus found favor in her and healed her daughter. God is good.
