Affected Teaching
Jesus was ministering in Galilee and verse 24 marks His departure from Galilee into the area of Tyre and Sidon. It is here where He ministers to a Syro-Phoenician woman whose daughter was possessed by a devil. There is no logical reason why “and from thence” and “and Sidon” should have been omitted from the modern versions.
