Our sermon series is called, “Following Jesus” because that’s what we’re learning to do in the Gospel of Matthew. Matthew is a theological biography of the most compelling Person in history–the Person of Jesus Christ. And Jesus Christ has called us to follow Him and fish for more followers.
So, in today’s passage, Jesus takes another strategic withdrawal. And this time He actually goes into the borderland near the outside of Israel. Jesus goes into some territory that is primarily occupied, not by Jews or even Samaritans, but just by plain old Gentiles. In many ways, it’s like a cross-cultural missions trip for Jesus. We meet a woman who has Great Faith in a Great God.
Pastor Matt preaching on Matthew 15:21-39.
