Matthew 15:26-27 says, “But He answered and said, It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.” And she said, “True, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”
Of the disciples that wrote the gospels, each one of them wanted to preserve, teach and report their unique experience; their understanding of the events that took place while they were with Jesus.
For example, all of the gospels refer to Jesus as the Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Man, the Servant of the Lord. Matthew is the only disciple who refers to Jesus as Immanuel, “God with us.”(Matthew 1:23)
And so, Matthew opens his gospel recognizing that in Jesus, God is revealed and that He is with us. And he ends the gospel with Jesus saying, “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
