Healing; the children’s bread| Pt.2

THE WOMAN’S RESPONSE The Syrophoenician woman referred to Jesus as the Son of David as she approached Him. The phrase “son of David” alludes to God’s agreement with King David. This covenant covered both the Jewish people and the state of Israel. That covenant inc luded provision for healing.

The Right Hand of God pt.2

WHAT DOES THE RIGHT HAND SYMBOLIZE? The Hand of Authority You’ve likely heard the term “he’s my right-hand man,” but have you ever wondered where this phrase originated? My understanding is that it was taken from the Bible. There are 166 occurrences of the phrase “right hand” throughout the Bible; therefore, it is not a coincidence that this phrase carries essential connotations. The right hand is considered a symbol of strength, maybe due to the fact that most people are right-handed and the fact that the right hand is typically the one with the most strength. The majority of individuals
