When Jesus is your last chance and his reaction is ... mystifying.
The distraught Canaanite woman with a daughter tormented by a demon — this man Jesus is the last chance. But his response to her is … mystifying.
He answers her entreaty with silence; he discounts her out of “justice”; he even seems to refer to her as a dog. But the woman acknowledges something beyond all that. Great is your faith! What is given is more than healing.
