The word is incredulous. I know reading comprehension is not a skill that you value, so if this escapes you, find an adult to explain.
Your answer is in John 6:40. You will see that she was not in need of those messages. She already lived them. Jesus acknowledged that.
As to the knockout you crave, here it is.
Why have you avoided the uncomfortable question that is before you? Simple. No matter how you answer, you make yourself the fool that you fear to admit.
Study the word with the intent to grow spiritually, rather than as a weapon to wield in your frustration, and you will discover that you are the swine to which Jesus referred. The enemies of God. You are one, and you’re the only one who has missed the true ramifications of what that means.

Did your debate coach actually teach you that repeating a flawed argument magically transforms it into a valid one.
How bout that medical discount? Am I your doctor, or not?
May 23, 2013 at 1:03am
I notice that you have overlooked my offer of discounted medical care. May I add you to my patient list?

Continue the passage:
“Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord help me. But he answered and said, it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she (non jew Canaanite) said, truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith, be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.”
So you see, Jesus was providing an object lesson to his apostles, who did have that haughy attitude.
Shall I continue with his encounter with the Roman centurion (also a gentile), which concluded with Jesus pronouncement that such faith he had not seen in all Israel.
So in some measure, his ministry was a rebuke to the jews. They couldn’t match the faith of the gentiles.
Lastly, you overlook the entire purpose of his ministry, summarized in John 3:16. It does not say that he came so that no jew should perish.

So are all of you. God Bless You.
Can I still be your doctor? You do believe me about that, don’t you?
May 22, 2013 at 9:24pm
Aren’t you also assuming I am Christian? Has it occurred to you that I may only be playing your deceitful little game of masquerade, better than you. Maybe I find it mildly amusing, occasionally, to troll the trolls.
Peace be upon you. Inshallah.

All this time I thought Jesus ministry was to any who would believe. Thanks for straightening me out. So it was just for the Jews. Coulda sworn they cried “Give us Barrabas.” And then cried “Crucify him,” when asked about Jesus. Guess He also never told his disciples to go into all the world and make believers of men.
The swine were not gentiles, rather those who were hostile to his message of reconciliation to God. More like many of the Jews, you know those who delivered Him up to the Romans for execution.
Tell me. Do you also hate Messianic Jews?
May 22, 2013 at 8:35pm
Talk of assumption.
You actually think I took you OR Amirah to be Jewish. Far too much hatred in both of you to make that mistake. Only giving you the opportunity to display that you have acquired just enough cursory knowledge of scripture for it to have rendered you stupid. You know the letter of the law, but are clueless to its spirit.
I expect you to be screaming “Give me Barrabus.” On that day.

“Do not be unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and lawlessness have in common? What fellowship has light with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14
“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2Timothy 2:15
Refer to earlier post about getting understanding.
I’ll try to simplify your error such that even you can grasp it.
I did not study pre med as an undergraduate. Did not attend med school. No internship. No residency. And no medical license. Yet I insist that I am, indeed, a doctor. And I practice by the oath of Hippocrates. That’s good enough for you, right. So when you need cardiac care, I’m your choice for a surgeon, right. I’ll even give you the Blaze discount.
May 22, 2013 at 6:58pm
Everyone is invited to the Blaze BBQ.
I’m bringing the beans and pototo salad.
Zenga’s got the red heifer.
If someone else can get the buns, ketchup and paper plates we can all meet on the Temple Mount at two PM on………..what day is Yom Kippur this year? Hope that’s not a Satuday.
May 22, 2013 at 6:21pm
Haha, perfect. Thank you.
For in that day the Gentiles will have to turn to the Jews. All Christians will be in paradise with God. Not the Jews, however, since they scorned their Messiah and delivered Him to the Romans.
Why would the Jews be of any help? They are not in any position even to help themselves. YHWH has not relieved them of the requirement of sacrifice. Yet sixty plus years in Jerusalem and still no Temple; still no sacrifice. Perhaps you could enlighten me on their problem with obedience.
May 22, 2013 at 4:01pm
If you actually had any understanding of the book you mock, you would know that it states clearly and obviously and unmistakably that every believer is qualified an authorized to know who is and is not Christian.
“You will know them by their fruit.” Matthew 7:16
You lose, again. Despite what your heroes tell you, ignorance is really not a virtue.
May 22, 2013 at 11:30am
How FOOLISH you are.
Claiming to be Chistian no more makes one Christian than you claiming to be intellectual makes you intellectual.
‘In all thy getting, get understanding.’
May 22, 2013 at 9:34am
You mistake faith for theology.
I can, however prophecy in His name. In the end, you lose.
If you will excuse me, I am going to shake the dust off my feet. Happier eternity.
May 21, 2013 at 10:30pm
Really. Suicide bombers, daily rocket attacks, Hamas, Hezb’allah, etc., millions of friendly neighbors daily seeking your destruction, criticism and persecution from the civilized world, necessary participation in the armed forces by every able bodied adult. You’ve got a perverse definition of better.
But, then, your burning animosity for Jesus has made you perverse all around.
May 21, 2013 at 11:54am
Zenga, I hear from my God every day. You?
Finish your response. How’s things been going for the children of Israel? Peachy, huh?
May 20, 2013 at 9:48pm
You mean the dolt who thought the Dept of Education was a great idea. No conservative paragon, there.
Lamar Alexander is my Senator. I will not be voting for him in the next election nor will I be voting for our Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey as they both are in support of the internet tax. They say that it is not an unfair tax and that it's a good idea. I thought 2 main conservative principals was smaller government and lower taxes. They are both RINOS
May 20, 2013 at 1:32pm
Been like, what, 2400 years since you heard from him. Ever stop to wonder why?
May 20, 2013 at 1:29pm
And “your” God has done such a good job of looking after his “chosen” people.
