Matthew Henry's Commentary – Chapter 15
Chapter 15

In this chapter, we have our Lord Jesus, as the great Prophet teaching, as the great Physician healing, and as the great Shepherd of the sheep feeding; as the Father of spirits instructing them; as the Conqueror of Satan dispossessing him; and as concerned for the bodies of his people, providing for them. Here is, I. Christ’s discourse with the scribes and Pharisees about human traditions and injunctions, Matt. 15:1-9. II. His discourse with the multitude, and with his disciples, concerning the things that defile a man, Matt. 15:10-20. III. His casting of the devil out of the woman of Canaan’s daughter, Matt. 15:21-28. IV. His healing of all that were brought to him, Matt. 15:29-31. V. His feeding of four thousand men, with seven loaves and a few little fishes, Matt. 15:32-39.
