Jesus refers to himself as the good shepherd, contrasting himself to the bad ones who had come before, such as the religious leaders who didn’t look after their sheep, but rather themselves. They had behaved badly towards the weak, the sick and the vulnerable, but now, through Jesus, God himself would become their shepherd and the sheep would be cared for. The Lord is our shepherd, going before us into the challenging situations we face, we need to follow Jesus in our lives and lead others into his shepherding care.
