The Lamb That Was The Shepherd


Amazed at how the Christ could participate in a human frame, dealing with such brutal pain and yet have the mental endurance to "cross the T's and dot the I's" of Hebrew scripture and in an undeniable way:


"Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit."

John 19:28‭-‬30 NIV


These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: “Not one of his bones will be broken,” and, as another scripture says, “They will look on the one they have pierced.”

John 19:36‭-‬37 NIV


See below, as well as the detail of Ps. 22.

Then again, it is easy to see why so many misinterpreted the the Christ, the Lamb that was the Shepherd. We celebrate the exploits of David as a warrior, when in reality, he was hand selected as a shepherd boy to replace a warrior, King Saul.


The warrior, whom life made David to become, would again be contrasted with God's true nature when it came time to construct the temple.


Somehow, we still prefer war!


"Then he called for his son Solomon and charged him to build a house for the Lord, the God of Israel. David said to Solomon: “My son, I had it in my heart to build a house for the Name of the Lord my God. But this word of the Lord came to me: ‘You have shed much blood and have fought many wars. You are not to build a house for my Name, because you have shed much blood on the earth in my sight. But you will have a son who will be a man of peace and rest, and I will give him rest from all his enemies on every side. His name will be Solomon, and I will grant Israel peace and quiet during his reign. He is the one who will build a house for my Name. He will be my son, and I will be his father. And I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’"

1 Chronicles 22:6‭-‬10 NIV
