Having met with rejection from the Pharisees, Jesus goes to Gentile territory and encounters faith in an unexpected place, in the Canaanite woman. His mission had previously been to his own people. This adds a new dimension to his mission.  The initial reaction of Jesus to the woman was one of rejection but her persistence won a response from himIn the Gospels, Jesus often tests his followers. He certainly tests Peter and the other disciples. He challenges them to think, and to come up with the right answers. Perhaps he is testing not only the woman’s faith but also his disciples and ours.
