The book of Matthew tells the story of a Syrophonecian woman who approached Jesus as he withdrew further into the region of Tyre and Sidon. Jesus appears to put her off, but she continues to plead for Jesus to heal her daughter, responding with “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.” Jesus was moved by her faith and healed her daughter. Pastor Matt leads us in a message about how this woman pressed in and hung on to Jesus and what it means for our own faith.
