What do you think about when you see a shepherd?
Jesus said after feeding the 5000. Jesus said to them, I tell you the truth, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from Heaven. For the bread of God is he who comes down from Heaven and gives life to the world. I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never be hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
Jesus said after curing a man born blind His disciples asked him, Rabbi who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind? Neither this man or his parents sinned. Said Jesus, This happened so that Gods work might be shown in his life. As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
Jesus Said to the Pharisees. I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me _ just as the father knows me and I know the Father _ and I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, there shall be one flock and one Shepherd.
