The word "dog" in Mark 7:24-30 is a word characterized by colonizing, dictators, and feudal who want to separate a person on a social, religious, and racial basis. The postcolonial study is the right approach to uncover the complicated of Jesus ' experience with the Syro-Phoenician woman, remembering that the Gospel of Mark was written at the turbulent time of colonial politics, circa 70 CE. The text and context of Mark become integral to the colonization process. The authority of Jesus symbolically as ruler acted superiority over the Syro-Phoenician woman, weak and unclean. The authoritative rule over the weak so that it produces stereotypical prejudices and presumptions. At first, they are viewing at each other from different places, from their perspective cultural perception rooms, searching for the same meeting point, establishing bilateral agreements. In the end, they recognize one another that resulted in repentance.
