Matthew - 15:- How the Gentile women knew that Jesus is the Christ and how humble she became?
The Faith of a Canaanite Woman
21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, â€œLord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.â€
23 Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, â€œSend her away, for she keeps crying out after us.â€
24 He answered, â€œI was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.â€
25 The woman came and knelt before him. â€œLord, help me!â€ she said.
26 He replied, â€œIt is not right to take the childrenâ€™s bread and toss it to the dogs.â€
27 â€œYes it is, Lord,â€ she said. â€œEven the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masterâ€™s table.â€
28 Then Jesus said to her, â€œWoman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.â€ And her daughter was healed at that moment.
