The image of Jesus as the Good Shepherd is near and dear to the hearts of many. The pastoral scene of grazing sheep on green hillsides gives us a sense of peace. And with the good shepherd nearby and on watch, what could be better? Scripture, however, has more to say about sheep and shepherds. If we are the sheep of God’s pasture, what does it mean that Jesus is the Shepherd? Is this image more than a comforting ideal? That is the question for us today.
