and Jesus said to the fig tree...
and the fig tree said to jesus, "Fuk you"

Finally, there are at leas traces of chauvinism in him. When a Cannanite woman pleads with him to heal her daugher he responds, "It is wrong to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs" He declars explicitly, "I am not sent except to the lost sheep of the House of Israel"" To him gentile and publican are sequally terms of oprobrium. And he plainly instructs the Apostles not to bear his message to non-Jews.

These failings are understandable and pardonable as human frailities. Certainly they are more than offset by virtues. THe point is however that they are inconsistent with any claim to perfection on Jesus' behalf.

from Basic Judaism Milton Steinberg. Chap VI Israel and the nations
