Summary

This collection of twenty-seven sermons examines the story of Jesus’ exorcising a demon from a Canaanite woman’s daughter (described in Matthew 15:21-28 and Mark 7:24- 30). Throughout these sermons, Rutherford explores how God’s grace manifests itself in lives of faith. The Canaanite woman’s story, Rutherford tells us, shows how God began to reveal his saving grace more explicitly to Gentiles. More important for Rutherford, though, was holding up the Canaanite woman as an example of what true faith in Christ is and does. Additionally, Rutherford’s message serves to comfort his Christian readers; the Canaanite woman’s story provides an example of God’s compassion for all people, even the outcasts and lowliest ones among them.
