At the YIC Blog: Greece, Rome, and Israel

Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by birth. . . . He said to her, “Let the children first be fed, for it is not right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.”
-Mark 7:26, 27.

    Here’s a weird thought..long before the Maccabean war broke out the Greeks (Pyhruss) had already had a failed attempt at occupying Italy by defeat to the Roman Republic (Romans at that point hadn’t even conquered the whole of Italy yet and Greece/Macedon was at it’s peak) and Rome had long completed the first and second Punic wars.

    I’ve always wondered, what was Yeshua doing near Tyre?
