The Syrophoenician Woman: A Woman of Great Faith
“And from thence he arose, and went away into the borders of Tyre and Sidon” (Mark 7:24a). Matthew wrote that Jesus “withdrew” (15:21). This was the third time in which Jesus withdrew from Galilee in the gospel of Mark.
The Lord sought solitude with his disciples, but the text says,
He had not gone into Gentile territory to embark on a healing ministry, but his fame had reached beyond the borders of Galilee.
