#4 The Syro-Phonecian Woman
People Who Met Jesus
4 of 8
Jesus had travelled nearly 50 kms from His home area in Galilee to the region of Tyre on the Mediterranean coast in Phoenicia, (now Lebanon) a Syrian controlled area. It seems that Jesus had just wanted to get away quietly without the crowd. However, this woman had apparently heard of the fame of Jesus and His healing power. She was not about to let this opportunity pass without a very clear appeal for help for her daughter who was severely demon possessed. (Was this another case of Jesus being somewhere to meet the need of one person, like the Samaritan woman in John 4?
