  1. Luke says:

    J-Ro, I wrote an exegesis of Matt 7:1-6 that deals with Matthew’s attempt to shift the Father’s love paradigm held by Jews in C1st Israel which bears some relation to Matthew’s account of that story. Basically Matthew is trying to change the Jewish perspective on how God sees us, he is pushing towards a message of ‘Sons not Dogs’.

  2. “Are we not worth more than dogs?”

    Looking to appeal to the person’s compassion.
