Sheep and Shepherd

Jerusalem, Israel-Circa 1900

For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls..”
1 Peter 2:25

Price / kg:


There was a good reason why the illustration of a shepherd with his sheep was used so often in biblical times.  It was an illustration people could easily identify with in their cultural context. While this beautiful image of the shepherd holding the sheep shows the gentle and loving side of shepherding these soft and docile creatures, one must realize that the job is also a difficult and rugged one.

Middle Eastern cultures understood what shepherding was all about.  It was about feeding the lambs and the sheep, bringing them to good pasture lands and water, delivering new lambs, leading them and teaching them to stay together, going off after the wandering lost ones, and protecting the sheep in the field and in the fold.  Not only did Christ humble himself by taking the title of the Good Shepherd, he modeled for all of us his loving mandate to allow Him to shepherd us as we shepherd one another.
