The past week has thrust me into a wonderful study on shepherding in ancient Israel. I'm preaching Psalm 23 tonight at our Mid-Week service and I'm excited (as always) to declare that which I've learned in my studies this week.

I'm convinced that Psalm 23 contains two metaphors, namely, God as a Shepherd and God as a Host. I'm attempting to delve deep into the historical context of a shepherd tending his flock in the rural and dry lands of Israel and drawing in applications throughout as to how God is The Great Shepherd of His sheep.

Finally, I'll conclude with a study on how Jesus is the perfect and complete fulfillment of Psalm 23 (cf. John 10:11). I'll post the link to the sermon tomorrow! I covet your prayers.
