Matthew 15:24 Commentary - Abbott's Illustrated New TestamentVerse 24
Of the house of Israel; the Jews. Our Savior's ministry was confined almost entirely to the Jews. This restriction of the gospel to them, made for reasons not revealed, was not removed until the time of our Savior's ascension, when the disciples were commanded to go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
