The Faith of the Canaanite Woman

Matthew 15:21 | The Faith of the Canaanite Woman

21, Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon.

22, And a Canaanite woman from that region came to Him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is miserably possessed by a demon.”

23, But Jesus did not answer a word. So His disciples came and urged Him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.”…

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

25, The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said.

26, But Jesus replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”

27, “Yes, Lord, she said, “- even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”

28, “O woman,” Jesus answered, “your faith is great! Let it be done for you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.


John 13:31 | Love one another

30, As soon as he had received the piece of bread, Judas went out into the night.

31, When Judas had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in Him.

32, If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify the Son in Himself—and will glorify Him at once.

33, Little children, I am with you only a little while longer. You will look for Me, and as I said to the Jews, so now I say to you: ‘Where I am going, you cannot come.’

34, A new commandment I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so also you must love one another.

35, By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.”
