Why did Jesus call this Gentile woman a “dog”? Was he just being racist and culturally elite? No. As we look at this passage we’ll see how Jesus is teaching an important lesson about the inclusion of the Gentiles. He then demonstrates this compassion by exorcising the demon from this Gentile woman’s daughter.
