Sermon Notes

   This morning is the fifth message in our series entitled The Miracles of Jesus that parallels our small group study. We will look at the miracle of Jesus healing the Canaanite women’s daughter who was oppressed by the demonic.

   Jesus said that she had “great faith”. We will address a few things about her faith that led to Jesus making that declaration based on what she called Jesus, the attitude in which she approached Him, and the great persistence that she had.

   One of Jesus’ responses to her was calling the Gentiles, which she was, “dogs”. Did He mean that in a derogatory way? What was her response to Him? We will also address briefly the demonic and illness.
