I wonder if Christ went to the ocean for a little r and r. Frustrated by the jews for their persistent use of the law to disgrace Him and his word. Always pitting him against their traditions. Frustrated by there obstinance he calls them hypocrites. So he goes for a long walk to the oceanside where he receives a humble loving mother. A greek Mother. Ya ,ya. You can almost feel his frustration, using words like dogs when describing the gentiles and the Jews. Then this Mother blows him away with her confession. Her thankfulness in knowing what He will do. After He heals her daughter, He is rejuvenated, then proceeds on his mission to the 10 cities of Decapolis. Christ was spreading the Gospel

Christ is referring to the children of Israel, That the children would be filled or taught the salvation that has come unto them in Himself,the Messiah. Christ is that bread of life given not only to the Jews ,but also the Gentiles who this woman is. Jesus is saying that by giving his bread to dogs would be wasting his time not giving it first to the children of Israel. What is interesting about this story is how far Christ travels for this woman confession. Then leaves to return to Galilee. He uses her example of the great faith that she has, and her humility in knowing the Lord will heal her daughter. Confession is enough for just 1 crumb of his grace to be saved from sickness and sin.
