Word: Mark (Crumbs for Dogs)
According to my reliable sources (Wikipedia), Mark was the first one of the Gospels to be written (suck on that, Matthew, Luke and John!). At 16 chapters, it's the shortest Gospel as well. In honor of Mark, I'll be brief in my reflection this week.
Um, Jesus? Did you just call that woman a dog?
In this passage, Jesus is obviously giving us permission to call each other derogatory names as long as there's food involved. Theonerds, if you think I'm wrong, feel free to chime in.
