The I AM Statements of Jesus – I AM the Good Shepherd

For many people, their favourite image of Jesus is that of a shepherd, surrounded by His flock of sheep, perhaps one draped over His shoulders. It conjures a warm, protective picture of Him, and brings to mind one of the most loved passages in all of Scripture. “The LORD is my shepherd. I shall not be in want” (Psalm 23:1). This, however, was not the way the Pharisees saw it. Author and Bible teacher, Charles Price, tells us about a double-edged blasphemy, which led Jesus to the cross, but as the ‘Good Shepherd’, He is the life that gives us life.
