An Odd Comment

It feels so weird reading in verse 27, “First let the children eat all they want,” [Jesus] told her, “for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to their dogs.”

What a harsh comment when she begs Jesus to help her demon-possessed daughter.  It sounds cruel.

Fortunately, the woman has a wise answer and not a defensive one, so Jesus does in fact heal the child.

But what if she’d replied poorly?  I don’t like considering this possibility.
