(Strong's #4949 Noun Feminine surophoinikissa | surophunissa soo-rof-oy'-nis-sah )
occurs in Mark 7:26 as the national name of a woman called "a Canaanitish woman" in Matthew 15:22 , i.e., not a Jewess but a descendant of the early inhabitants of the coastland of Phoenicia. The word probably denoted a Syrian residing in Phoenicia proper. There is a tradition that the woman's name was Justa and her daughter Bernice (Clementine Homilies, 2:19; 3:73). In Acts 21:2,3 , the two parts of the term are used interchangeably.
