English: Good Shepherd
|Date||16 July 2011|
English: This is the most accurate image of this work that I've been able to find. This beloved painting is based on Jesus' teaching that He is the Good Shepherd: His sheep follow Him willingly and eagerly, because He is willing to do anything for their well being.
The opposite of the Good Shepherd is described in Ezekiel 37 where God is angry with the selfish shepherds who take all the best for themselves, they don't look after the flock, and they allow bullies to abuse the sheep. Jesus wanted his disciples to be good leaders.
The parable of the Good Shepherd is also a message of comfort for the flock, that Jesus cares about us and loves us. King David described the love of God as a good shepherd in Psalm 23, "The Lord is my Shepherd."
