Jesus told the Canaanite woman "I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel" to fulfill the scriptures that were written concerning his death burial & resurrection! Scripture for told of his coming in many places! But the Jews could not accept that he was the Messiah because they lacked the faith to see it! But the Canaanite woman having faith worshiped him the scripture says and so Christ honored that and rebuked the devil from her daughter. Only after the crucifixion & resurrection was salvation now open to all.

Elizabeth, if u think about this verse only, i think u will never see the accurate answer becouse there are more verse about the salvation for sinner.there are more ministry miracle among the people of gentile . Jesus he said himself, "Go and spread the gospel in all nation ". .and think abou this . "For God so love the world............. john-3:16 . not said that "for God so love the lost israel " so we need god for salvation from our sins...

see the context of this verse-matt.15:24. she was a Canaanite woman-a gentile. Christ compares her to a dog.but see her faith in a jewish-chtist. did he see such faith in Israel? same matthew who wrote this text, also wrote chapter-1. the lineage of Christ.tamar-a Canaanite,rahab a canaatite,ruth was a Moabite, Bathsheba-uriahs wife- a Hittite. all these gentile women stepped into the messianic line. this is the true nature of kingdom of chtist.everything Christ said had deep , hidden meaning.only the holy spirit can reveal this to us.me,a gentile, go on my knees and say- my LORD AND MY GOD.

Lets face it ,this verse spoken by Jesus is crystal clear isn 't it , Christ is saying that He was sent only to the people of -where- who - the children of Jacob better known as Israel and who were the children of , you guessed it the Jews. These people were so rebellious that TheAlmighty sent prophets upon prophets to give them guidance. And even on to this day they continue in their way to cause rebellion. The ironic thing about this is that one of his deciples is telling the world this , of what he himself said . But the Christian world is denying that he said this . putting words in his mouth just because you wants it your way does not makes it the truth.if your name is Mr White and I go telling the world that you are Mr Black would I be right? this JESUS as was not sent to for all mankind simply put.

YB Elizabeth has an interesting question, but I disagree with your answer. Many native Americans, over the two thousand some years since the resurrection, continued in their tribal religions. Read John 3 16, and reconsider your position. Faith in Jesus is the only thing that will save someone, not being born a Native American, or being born Hispanic. Please keep in mind that being a NativeAmerican does not make you saved by default, and being Asian or White does not make you less capable of being saved. To say that Jesus can only save certain ethnicities is discounting His love for sinners it is not His will that any perish .

Search the scriptures to find out who Israel is and then Mt 15 24 makes sense Romans says and then will all Israel be saved

@Elizabeth he only died for the so called negros, Hispanic, and Native American Indians which are the Israelites according to the Holy Bible

He was sent to Israel, His people. The other nations who see the Israelites walk not according to the course of this world may follow in the light that Israel is to be to the heathen. If they do they will not perish.

If Jesus said that he was not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel (Mathew 15:24)
How can then Jesus be for the whole humanity as he himself says he was only for Israel and how can he take all the sins of the world when he was only limited for Israel
Please respond to me with accurate answer
