The Good Shepherd
Audio | Notes | John 10:3-4,11-21
This morning we are (unexpectedly) pausing our study through the Sermon on the Mount to consider one of the most personal images Jesus uses to describe how he relates to his people – as the good shepherd. What image comes to mind when you think of Jesus? Maybe, king? Or, savior? Or, friend? What about shepherd? This image has comforted millions of Jesus’ people for over 2,000 years. There is more being communicated here than a mere quaint ancient near east metaphor.
