23 Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.”

24 He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”

25 The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said.

26 He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”

27 “Yes it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”

Matthew 15:23-27

Jesus said that gentiles are "dogs" and Jews are his children. What are your thoughts?

I don't think we're that far apart intellectually. We have had fruitful discussions before. I just don't think any Christian can deny that the Bible is fundamentally a Jewish book intended for Jews. Is there a single important person in the Bible who is a gentile?

You were literally just given citations disproving this claim which only jews have ever made.
