What welcome words of comfort and acceptance, especially after being treated with cruelty and rejection. The man had been born blind, but Jesus had miraculously given him sight. Instead of celebrating this amazing kindness with the healed man, the religious leaders had mocked him and kicked him out of the synagogue! It was in this context that Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” Isn’t that good news? Join us in John 10 as we enjoy the glorious news of Jesus being our Good Shepherd.
