Well, being a Jew meant that you were a son of God, and Jesus was called a Samaritan and a non-Jew. Samaritans, Syrians etc. were often refered to as
dogs by the Jews. Jesus himself calls a woman dog when she begs him to heal his daughter from demons:
atthew 15:22 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly
from demon-possession." 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 their dogs."
27 "Yes, Lord," she said, "but even the dogs eat the
crumbs that fall from their masters' table." 28 Then Jesus answered, "Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted." And her daughter was
healed from that very hour.
While the Jews were sheep and children, the other people were refered to as dogs, swine and other unclean animals often hated by the Jews. It sound's
quite racist, and indeed it is, but this was and often is a side effect of being called the Chosen People of God. nearly two millennia later, it was
the Jews' turn to be clled dogs and swine, when Hitler rattled his sables and killed off millions of Jews in the gas chambers. Hitler also saw
himself as a chosen of God, and the Arian "race" was the children of God and the most excellent. Strange what people do when they believe they are
chosen of God...
