In thinking of Christ as the Good Shepherd, how does this title describe an Easter Christ in particular? Shepherds gather their flock; is it difficult to see that flock as Jesus makes his triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday?Was His last supper the feeding of that flock? Where did he protect his flock? Was not The Passion is our protection? And when did he rescue us? He journeyed into the tomb to rescue us from death and darkness and bring us back into light and life. Thats what a shepherd does; gather their flock, bring them to food that sustains them, protects them from evil, and rescues them from peril.
