Driscoll on “Harsh Language”

I found this video while working through Matthew 15 and Jesus’ confounding words to a Canaanite woman. Making an appeal for her daughter. Oddly Jesus does not offer the same kind of biting retort to the Centurion in Matthew 8. I tend to think Jesus’ words sarcastically represent the sentiment of the religious leaders and how they fail to help those in need by sticking so tightly to their perception God’s grace and mercy is only available to them. Mark offers some sobering thoughts on how we domesticate the Scriptures, taming any “offense” out of them.
