“But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.”
King James Version (KJV)

Jesus came to preach & teach to the Jews first. It's a prophesy. Read verses in your center of the page reference columns.
The disciples were told to wait in the upper room for Pentecost: to receive the Holy Spirit and power.
The Gentiles had to wait until Apostle Paul got saved, filled with the Holy Spirit, and told his ministry would be to the Gentiles.
This great website has a Commentary Box you can click on to read explanation of any scripture in the Bible.
pull up your verse in one of the 2 Search Boxes. Click and it turns yellow. Scroll downward till you see the Commentary Box.
Open it up
You would've seen that the prophesy said Jesus would be sent to the Jews first.
Why? Because the Jews and Romans were going to crucify Jesus; just like John the Baptist was killed.
I make mistakes too, so just apologize to Jesus. Humility is good for us :/
It makes for good teachers.
The Holy Spirit is our Teacher. Like me, ask Him to help you understand what you're reading. He will show you amazing things!
He is the ONE the disciples were waiting for.
If we hunger and thirst for righteousness; we will be Filled

Matthew 15:26 made me ask, why does it appear that Jesus is snubbing this woman (trying to get rid of her/ speaking a racial slur/ telling her- you know what my kind thinks of your kind ) Could we be seeing that Jesus is "fully human"? We know He sometimes was annoyed and irritated with His disciples. He preaches "meek and mild", but in this case he comes across as "mean and wild". I always need to reflect on the whole counsel of scripture which is so "crystal clear". Jesus models giving up your rights for others and being a safe place for others who come into your space. Over and over again He tells us that He came to bring all into the community of the redeemed, that He wants none to be lost, and that if we want to be great in His Kingdom we should be the least (so others can be lifted up). He tells us to be done with unequal relationships. How clear His message- both Jews and Gentiles need grace. How clear that HE is all about bringing all people together and putting them on the same plain . His WORD is the ultimate anti discrimination message. His life, the "Divine Reversal" of racism.

Where did tradition really come from? Are these people who keep traditions today pharisess? We as believers are to watch what come out from our mouth when ministering to people who are lost, we could be judging, however if that person want to have a relationship with God. I think people of God should live by example with their life not words, you should not be putting pearls in the ears of lost people, unless they are repenting and coming to Christ.
