Proper 15

Proper 15

20 August 2023

In a captivating twist, a Rabbi, a Priest, and a minister's entrance into a bar pales in comparison to a Syrophoenician woman's encounter with Jesus and his disciples. With fervor, she implores, "Have mercy on me, Lord!" Unexpectedly, Jesus doesn't react as anticipated. Only her unyielding determination in the face of rejection prompts Jesus to reconsider and lend an ear to her plea. In this week's Project Zion Podcast episode, co-hosts Karin Peter and Blake Smith explore Jesus' profoundly human side, shedding light on the intersection of his divinity and humanity. The narrative underscores the power of persistence in the pursuit of justice.
