WHO IS IMPORTANT?
The Syrophoenician Woman's Faith
24 And from there he arose and went away to the region of Tyre & Sidon. & he entered a house & did not want anyone to know, yet he could not be hidden. 25 But immediately a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit heard of him & came & fell down at his feet. 26 Now the woman was a Gentile, a Syrophoenician by birth. And she begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter. 27 And he said to her, “Let the children be fed first, for it is not right to take the children's bread & throw it to the dogs.” 28 But she answered him, “Yes, Lord; yet even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs.” 29 And he said to her, “For this statement you may go your way; the demon has left your daughter.” 30 And she went home & found the child lying in bed & the demon gone.
Jesus Heals a Deaf Man
31 Then he returned from the region of Tyre & went through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, in the region of the Decapolis. 32 & they brought to him a man who was deaf and had a speech impediment, & they begged him to lay his hand on him. 33 And taking him aside from the crowd privately, he put his fingers into his ears, and after spitting touched his tongue. 34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.” 35 & his ears were opened, his tongue was released, & he spoke plainly. 36 & Jesus charged them to tell no one. But the more he charged them, the more zealously they proclaimed it. 37 & they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He even makes the deaf hear& the mute speak.”
