Love the perspective of a week's worth of reading; the analogy of the symphony is beautifully appropriate! By the way, I don't think the gentile woman's reply about the dogs under the table was cheeky. I think she was using Jesus' metaphor to demonstrate that she understood her position in his ministry and also her faith that even the crumbs of his ministry (power, miracles, attention) would be sufficient to heal her daughter. That Jesus recognized the demonstration of faith and humility suggests that he took her reply as sincere - and once again (as with the Centurion) a gentile "shows up" the chosen Jews with respect to faith in Messiah. The question is, do do have that same faith in the "crumbs"? Could we handle an entire place setting?

Perhaps you're thinking of Acts 1:42-47 (at least, that's what your list reminded me of): 42They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. 44All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. 46Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

Good morning! In an attempt to make OYB blogroll list management easier on everyone, I created a public blogroll, available for everyone to use: I'll be happy to maintain it; just let me know when I need to make changes!

Great idea! I've done the same (see trackback, above). PS - my last name is spelled "Bennett" :) Cheers!
